Reminder: Registration Open for August ALA Connect Live Event on Reopening Libraries (Thursday, August 27, at 1:00 PM)

(via the American Library Association)

In times of uncertainty, connection and conversation are more important than ever. This is what inspired the ALA Executive Board to launch a series of monthly conversations with you, our membership community. Initially a focus of President-Elect Julius C. Jefferson, Jr. to connect with members, ALA Connect Live is an opportunity to bring the ALA family and library community together to discuss our issues and challenges. These town hall-inspired conversations allow for an open dialogue with the Executive Board and with your fellow library professionals. Membership in ALA is not required to participate.

Join us for our August event.
