ALSC Board of Directors Committee

In: Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) -- Governance

Greetings, Board colleagues.

I am calling an online meeting of the ALSC Board of Directors.

The agenda item is to respond to the Budget Committee's recommendation to fund the School-Age Programs and Services Committee proposal (attached) for Tween Non-fiction/fiction Paired List Bookmarks and Book List for up to $1500 from the FY2017 Children's Library Services Endowment funds.

Greetings, Board--

As we are currently convened in an online meeting, I would like to include an additional agenda item which has just come to our attention today regarding the Librarian of Congress. The Office of Government Relations (OGR) for the ALA Washington Office has invited ALA divisions to endorse a letter to the Senate Rules Committee asking them to rapidly vote to recommend to the full Senate that Dr. Carla Hayden be confirmed immediately to serve as the nation’s 14th Librarian of Congress.
