Message from your 2020-2021 President, Laura Spears: 
Lead Inclusively

In 2019, we made a commitment with our president, Eric Head, to lead forward. To lead with heart but also with vision. And as library workers, we established even better literacy programs, took the funding fights head on, and continued to extend our services and resources to those for whom this may be the only contact they have each day with a kind voice. 

And then 2020 happened. What we thought were our problems were sidelined by a need to simply change the air we breathe. COVID-19 has caused us to close our doors, back away from both friends and strangers, to retreat into our homes until it is safe to come out. But still many have experienced first-hand the impact of this disease so our libraries reach out to help and to comfort.
