I’ve blogged this before, and I am blogging it again today. There is in the midst of the candidates for ALA president elect a candidate I want to see WIN! Yes, this is MY ringing endorsement for Sara Kelly Johns as president-elect of the American Library Association.
Far too often I’ve felt leaders of my professional organizations were out of touch with the needs of school librarians (the title just recently voted for/adopted at ALA Midwinter 2010), but having our own Sara Kelly Johns leading ALA will ensure that teacher librarians (my choice for my title) everywhere will be in the minds of leadership as ALA takes on initiatives, activities and plans for moving the organization forward. Join me in voting for Sara Kelly Johns as the 2010 ALA President Elect.
You must be a member of ALA by January 31, 2010 to vote, so hop on over to the ALA site and JOIN! Read about Sara from any of these portals:
