Librarians Build Communities Membership Initiative Group Discussion/Interest group Marriott Marquis San Francisco
Sierra Suite A
Description :

What does the phrase "librarians build communities" mean to you? Our project began with the idea that librarians can demonstrate commitment through volunteer work, but we recognize our engagement and commitments as library staff stretch far beyond that. To realize our full potential as a membership initiative group and eventually as a round table, we'd like to support, encourage, and recognize all forms of community connection. Bring your ideas and enthusiasm to this meeting to help craft the next movement in ALA and our profession - one that will celebrate the contributions and value that librarians bring to our communities.
