Incredible Showing at ULA Conference!


Our own Pamela Martin
conducts the business
meeting as ULA President. 
The 2015 conference of the Utah Library Association was held May 13-15 in St. George and programs involving our Cache Valley colleagues were very prominent. In fact, CVLA President Liz Woolcott did the math and found that while Cache Valley's population is only 4% of Utah, we were represented in 33% of the conference programs! Great work, everyone!
