On Monday evening, October 1, the ALA Washington Office’s Mark Bard was seriously injured when struck by a drunk driver near his home. Mark is currently in critical condition at the Washington Hospital Center here in Washington, DC.
We know that many of you have met Mark through his attendance at ALA Conferences and his participation in the Second Life working group.
Mark is the Information Technology Specialist in ALA’s Office for Information Technology Policy (OITP).
Because he is in the critical care unit, the sending of flowers is not encouraged. Anyone wishing to send cards or get well-wishes to Mark is asked to send them in care of:
