From the President: Trinidad & Tobago Visit

I just returned from a quick visit to Port of Spain. The hotel is wonderful, with views of the mountains and city on all sides. Best of all, the Trinidadians (“Trinis”) are great hosts. It promises to be another great conference, and we are in very good hands.

I visited NALIS (the National Library), in downtown Port of Spain, where the Host Reception will be held on Monday, June 17th. The University of the West Indies campus and library are located in St. Augustine, a few miles outside of the city, and tours of the Alma Jordan Library will be offered. I visited the West Indiana collection and the Eric Williams special collection, and it’s worth a trip!

Weather: rain, clouds, sun, hot– fairly unpredictable! So come prepared. You won’t be cold!
