Join Albany Public Library as we celebrate our sixth annual By the Book Readers’ Advisory Conference! In 2009, we’re continuing to expand our skills and understanding of readers’ advisory in an ever-changing world.

Our featured speaker is Cynthia Orr, winner of the 2004 American Library Association Margaret E. Monroe Award for service to adults and an editor of The Reader’s Advisor Online, a website and blog aimed at readers’ advisory and collection development for public libraries. With an exciting sequence of programs for professional and paraprofessional staff scheduled for Friday, November 13th, APL’s By the Book event is designed to give attendees real-world readers’ advisory tips and techniques that they can implement in their libraries.
