Darien Library will be hosting a Drupal4Lib Camp on Friday, February 27, 2009 from 9 am to 4 pm. It just so happens this is the day after code4lib2009 ends in nearby Providence, RI -- so you can theoretically hop on over after code4lib proper ends.
The camp will be an opportunity for libraries who are working with Drupal, or interested in implementing Drupal, to get together, share experiences, solve problems, and collaborate. This unconference will be a combination of a series of 10 min lightning talks given by Drupal veterans in the morning followed by break-out sessions in the afternoon.
Audio and video from Drupal4Lib Camp sessions will also be streamed lived online. There is no registration fee. However, participation is limited to 70. Please register for the Drupal4Lib Camp.

By now pretty much everyone knows (since it was announced at Code4Lib 2008), but in the interest of the historical record, let it show that Brown University will be hosting Code4Lib 2009. They submitted the winning proposal that will bring all library coders who can make it to Providence, Rhode Island in February 2009. We hope to see you there!
