Being a candidate for ALA President is a great honor. I’ve already heard from so many people, sharing their hopes and aspirations for the association and how they would like to contribute over the coming years. It is inspiring to listen to the enthusiasm and vision and to learn about the great variety of libraries and the communities that they serve. Over the coming months I’ll have the opportunity to visit conferences and engage in virtual sessions as well as talk one-on-one with hundreds of colleagues and engage on social media (http://twitter.com/lisa4ala and https://www.facebook.com/lisa4ala). I look forward to engaging with everyone and working together to create our future together.
