Libraries in Florida have--for the last several years--been dealing with less than favorable legislation, from that limiting their budget to that limiting their growth, even in the most populous areas. In 2011, state aid is stepping in to the tune of 10 to 20 million dollars, a small chunk compared to other states, but a start here in Florida. With this slight increase, and an attendee base most certainly accustomed to dealing with adversity, and how to plan around it, it’s no surprise that librarians in the Sunshine State have also grown accustomed to making the utmost of informed decisions. They know the trade show is the best way to find new products, and especially new books, and with the conference staying in Orlando for a third straight year, you can bet attendance will see a larger-than-normal increase.
