Warning message

The launch of the new ALA Connect, scheduled for April 25, 2018, has been delayed due to technical issues. During final testing some critical issues related to navigation, tagging, and the structure of parent-child relationships were discovered.

The vendor is working to resolve these issues. We apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

While we're waiting to get started, please check out the resources and training on the support site. We'll keep you updated, in particular, we will communicate when we have a firm launch date.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact Pam Akins, Community Engagement Specialist, at alaconnectmigration@ala.org.

Albert (left) with Maxine

Albert Campion Morgan-Romans, R.I.P.

Albert was independent; most Siberia Huskies don't need constant petting. He was the alpha dog and the only dog that all the others liked. (We had four dogs at the time.)

The original Albert Campion was the amateur detective in the Margery Alligham mysteries.

George Jones Morgan-Romans, R.I.P.

George was the happiest, funniest dog I've known - our Dennis the Menace dog.

The original George Jones is one of the all-time best country music singers. His greatest hit, "He Stopped Loving Her Today," is ranked as one of the five best - perhaps THE best - country singles of all time.
