Walk to Aunties Bookstore
Meet up with your fellow PNLA peers and colleagues for a short walk (.7 miles) to Aunties bookstore - Spokane's local independent bookseller -- https://www.auntiesbooks.com/. Let's meet in the hotel lobby and assess whether folks want to walk or take the hotel shuttle. It's a delightful walk, but perhaps not in the heat.

YARN CRAWL: Field Trip to Paradise Fibers
Do you love to knit, crochet, spin? Do you need additional yarn or fiber for your next project? Or just have a kitten that needs a ball of yarn? Well, then this field trip is for you! Paradise Fibers in Spokane is truly worth experiencing while you are in town. We will meet up and take a group outing to one of the best yarn and fiber venues in the Northwest. 

Travel notes: we will meet in the Centennial Hotel lobby (conference hotel) and take public transportation (Bus Route 27) over to the shop. It's about a five minute ride and a half-block walk to Paradise. We'll plan to walk over to catch the bus around 2:10, with returning options on the half hour depending on how long you want to stay. Have $2.00 cash ready to ride, good for 2 hours. If you prefer to drive, note that their parking lot is very small and you may need to park on a side street. Looking forward to our fiber adventure!
