Sorry, folks, meant to only post this to my round table but for some reason it's crossposted here, too? Obviously everyone here knows about the meeting already! ------------------------------ Tara Brady Teen Librarian Queens Public Library She/Her/Hers ------------------------------

I missed the first invasion but the second person who joined after the meeting had already started, the one with the hoodie, was running a bright multicolored strobe light possibly (knowing the types of people who do this stuff) intended to trigger photosensitive illnesses. Judging from the reactions ...

Thank you so much for this Maggie!  At first glance I see $ 579,269.00 in costs that could presumably be eliminated or drastically reduced going forward if we shift to virtual meetings permanently, under three line items - Audio & Visual Equipment/Electrical/Room Setup, catering and council travel. ...

Further question on the final resolved: the Resolution on Protecting Privacy and Safety in Coronavirus-related Library Policy passed with a similar statement referring to the executive board to create guidance.  Would it be better if the resolution instructed a specific body in ALA (be it the EB , a ...

Hey, all.  I'm trying to spread my net as widely as I can to get feedback on this resolution. I'll start with a specific question but welcome all the feedback I can get.  It took me a bit of thinking to frame my confusion about what we need from that final resolved statement. That statement as it was ...

Hi, Gina.  I've had the same thought and have seen some discussion surrounding it, but I've only just started putting thoughts together.  Is your work email a good way to reach you currently?   ------------------------------ Tara Brady Teen Librarian Queens Public Library She/Her/Hers -------------- ...

Wow, this is a great idea.  The pressure China is able to exert on foreign companies to infringe on the speech of people outside its borders is very troubling to me personally.  From what I saw Blizz did back down somewhat, this time at least (though i'm not sure if the streamers were reinstated?) but ...

There are a couple different threads from today relating to how to better get to know each other but I wanted to draw out one point Julie Dietzel-Glair mentioned in the session this morning: having  extremely brief personal statements to include in the at-large councilor ballot, to give candidates an ...

First, I'd like to thank April and Susan for their comments.   Regarding the question of why the movers chose this route, again, the membership meeting is a venue for ALA members to seek the support of their fellow members.  So our intended consequence was to gain the support of members at the membership ...

First, I'd like to point out that the mover is not on council, and so isn't likely to see a discussion on this forum, though I believe at last part of it has been forwarded to her.  I don't know if Sherre is aware who is on the awards committee, let alone whether she knows how to go about contacting ...

Thanks for this, Ann.  I'd like to forward this to the SRRT Action Council list.  May I reproduce your message and/or forward the draft to that list for those who don't have access to this forum? ------------------------------ Tara Brady Teen Librarian Queens Public Library ------------------------- ...
