AJLer Visits ALA

Right after returning from the AJL Convention, I headed out to Mickey Mouse Land  (Anaheim, California) to attend ALA. I spent all day on Friday at the Library Advocacy Workshop . It was very valuable even though much of the information had to do with influencing state and local governments to fund public and school libraries. There were some good suggestions for fundraising and a few good lists of how to present your case about the need for libraries and librarians. The AJL Convention also had a workshop on Valuing Libraries given by Joanne Roukens. If a chapter would like to bring Joanne Roukens to present a regional workshop, they should contact me to arrange it. It is well worthwhile!

I also spent time visiting the exhibits and speaking to some of the vendors about attending the AJL Convention next year in Chicago as well as trying to set up some agreements for AJL members to get discounts. More on that as agreements are worked out! For now, AJL members can get discounts from KarBenand Pitspopany Publishers.

'Til Next Time,

Susan Dubin, AJL President
