After Hours at AALL

There’s nothing like relaxing at the end of a long day of committee meetings and educational programs.  CALL members took full advantage of the many after hours activities at AALL, from receptions to tours to parties of all kinds.

CALL members enjoyed the entertainment at this year’s AALL Board Member Ken Hirsh’s “Karaoke with Ken” event.  This year’s song list featured  Smells Like Nirvana and Johnny Cash’s Walk the Line in German.

Dueling Piano Guys at the West Party in the Reading Market

West hosted their annual party in the Reading Market.  There were plenty of food, drinks — and also dueling pianos.  Librarians danced and sang while connecting with old friends (and new).  They even belted out all of Bohemian Rhapsody at the top of their lungs (yes, we have it on video; no, we aren’t going to post it).
