Happy National Library Workers Day. I’m Loida Garcia-Febo, president of the American
Library Association. I am extremely grateful to our nation’s library
professionals for their passion, their dedication, and most importantly for sharing their expertise
with those in need. My mother served as a school librarian and
taught me at an early age that you can transform lives through education and lifelong learning. I am proud to serve with you as we continue
our vital work to support all communities. Thank you to the ALA – Allied Professional
Association and its work in certification and advocacy for the interests of library
professionals. Because of you … ALL of you… Libraries=Strong Communities.
