IFLA PARL Reception


IFLA PARL launched its pre-conference this evening with a lovely opening reception in the Great Hall of the Library of Congress. Thank you to all of the organizers, and a special thanks to those who made the Main Reading Room and Great Hall available to us after-hours. That was certainly an extraordinary treat.

Look for more photos in the morning update, but here are a few to start.
