The Dewey Divas would also like to congratulate Rick Ficek from Oshawa Public Library who was this year's recipient of the OLA Leadership in Adult Readers' Advisory Award.

And thanks to all the many librarians who stopped by our booths to chat about books and blogging or just life in general. We have such an interesting, vibrant community; a show like OLA always reminds me how lucky I am to be a part of it.
