Libraries Transform Officially Launched!

Libraries Transform was officially launched on Thursday, October 29, by ALA President Sari Feldman who was here in Washington, D.C. to kick-off this national campaign to increase public awareness of the value, impact and services provided by libraries and library professionals. Her visit was amplified by street teams on Capitol Hill, the National Mall, Union Station, Penn Quarter, Foggy Bottom, Dupont Circle and Georgetown, among other popular D.C. neighborhoods, where the team handed out Starbucks gift cards after passers-by answered a quiz about their library experiences. Taking part in the tour with Sari were: Keith Michael Fiels, ALA Executive Director, Cathleen Bourdon, ALA Associate Executive Director, Macey Morales, Deputy Director, ALA Public Awareness Office, Hallie Rich, Communications and External Relations Director, Cuyahoga County (OH) Public Library, Lisa Lindle, Grassroots Communications Specialist for ALA’s Washington Office, and me.
