Our very own Barb Stripling, former NYC director of School Library Services, is running for ALA President. We all know that she was a tireless advocate for us in NYC public schools and would continue that work on a national stage. School librarians are historically under-represented in ALA elections, so let’s turn out in force to support one of our own!
Polls will open at 9 a.m. CDT on March 19, 2012 for the American Library Association’s annual election. When the polls open, the ALA will notify voters by e-mail, providing them with their unique passcodes and information about how to vote online. The polls close on Friday, April 27 at 11:59 p.m. CDT. On May 4, the Election Committee will meet at the ALA offices to certify the election. Election results will be released following that meeting.
