The article presents the author's comments on a Kentucky Library Association's conference. Addressing the association's board as an honored guest, Keith Fiels, a member of the Kentucky Library Association, commented on how unique library association family is in comparison with others he has had the opportunity to visit in his position with the American Library Association. The second point was drawn from listening to member Stephen Krashen's various presentations on the power and importance of reading. He tried to greet as many people as possible, and he attempted to thank those who really deserve the credit in putting on an amazing conference, but he realize he did not reach as many people as he wanted. Like most family reunions, there were many opportunities to eat and greet including luncheons and banquets, where people met association leaders, listened to guest speakers who either informed or entertained (or both), and honored many of its members for their outstanding accomplishments and to the profession.
