    Hello everyone,

    I'm sharing this draft resolution honoring Dr. Phyllis Fisher who passed away recently.  Dr. Fisher was a longtime member of ALA, AASL, ALSC, BCALA, SRRT, and YALSA. 

    Dr. Fisher served as a secondary school librarian and Coordinator of Online Services at New York City School Library Systems for 16 years where she worked tirelessly to modernize the libraries in the New York Public Schools until retirement.   Dr. Fisher started her librarian career at Queens Public Library in 1956. 

    She was a deeply committed champion for information literacy and an advocate for the profession.  If you like to review this draft or second your name to this draft, please see here and add your name directly. 

    I'll be submitting this to the Resolution Committee by Friday, June 17th.   

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Regards,

    Corinthia
