  • 1.  Moving on from my Vermont Chapter Councilor position

    Hello folks -- just wanted to leave a quick note that I'm cycling off of my Vermont Chapter Councilor position. After four years, it's time for me to move on and free up a bit more time so I can get other things done within the Vermont Library Association.  I appreciate everyone's helpful counsel as I worked with many of you to help ensure that virtual governance was a possibility within ALA. I appreciate the hard work put in my ALA staff under trying circumstances and I've been happy to work with ALA presidents Julius C. Jefferson Jr., Patty Wong,  Lessa Kananiʻopua Pelayo-Lozada, and especially Emily Drabinski.

    I hope I've been helpful to many of you with feedback, support and presence as we navigated the new challenges librarianship has been facing in recent years. I can continue to be reached at and would be happy to continue to stay in touch with any of you. With gratitude, my best wishes.
