Hi, Ivan..it was nice to meet you in person. Your two workshops had an effect; several persons during the World Cafe about improving school library services and prominence in the Singapore schools listed "blogs" as a way to do so. I know where that came from! I was honored to be a keynote speaker at the first Singapore School Library Symposium. Thanks for all you do, Sara Kelly Johns, AASL President
