The latest issue of Arkansas Libraries is now on the ArLA Website. The direct link is https://arlib.org/resources/journal/SpringSummer2022/ArkansasLibrariesSpringSummer2022(ForWeb).pdf. From what Britt tells me, there is an extra bonus in there (compared to the print version). Anyway, enjoy!
Librarians have the ability to grow and shape those around them through the love of books. Is there a librarian in your life that goes above and beyond?
Help that special person, win $5,000 by nominating them for "I Love My Librarian" contest at the link below. *Deadline for submissions is September 30th.
Here is what her nominator, Britt Murphy, wrote:
Lynn is a fantastic librarian, director, and leader for all things ArLA. Her leadership as treasurer of ArLA during hard financial times was critical in keeping the Association afloat. I witnessed Lynn doing everything from putting together swag bags the night before a conference to staffing the registration desks at conference to trekking out regularly to check an empty ArLA PO box in Little Rock. She’s one of most dedicated librarians I know – no matter where she has worked, she devotes 150% to that library, including her in current position as director of National Park College’s library. Lynn’s also extremely funny and fun to be around…a lively conversation is guaranteed at the table where she sits! Just being around Lynn is a reason to be a part of ArLA.
