ALA, and librarians everywhere, couldn’t be more pleased and proud with the President’s choice of Dr. Carla Hayden, a past-president of the Association, to serve as the nation’s next Librarian of Congress. It’s also been tremendously gratifying, though not surprising, to see how immediate and broad the support for her nomination has been from other fields and industries. Librarians certainly aren’t alone in recognizing what a terrific candidate she is and what a great job she will do once confirmed by the Senate!
ALA’s Washington Office has been busy since the President announced Dr. Hayden’s choice preparing to help all proponents of the nomination to work with every Member of the Senate toward her earliest possible confirmation. Please stay tuned for more about how you can help once again give the nation a librarian…Librarian.
