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. The years of 2011-2013 have seen a slight loosening of the state’s budget, allowing for some more library spending. With this spending 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 near Orlando for a third straight year (Lake Buena Vista is less than 20 miles from the popular spot in Orlando), all indications are that the 2014 book fair should keep with the steam of the previous year’s.
