Are you CONNECTed with ALA?

I’m so excited to be officially using ALAConnect. I needed one place to manage all of my committees, friends, and professional work. If you haven’t tried it yet, go to and sign in. For those of us who love our facebook and social networking, this platform is enabling us to participate like never before EASILY in ALA. 

To log in use your ALA member username and password, then you can edit your profile, work with your ALA groups, start or join a new community, or find your friends and add them to your network. Learn more here and in the help community. You may also want to edit your profile to turn on email notices from Connect. If you’re not an ALA member, you can create a non-member account and join in the conversations.

Go on, give it a try. Show the ALA world how serious we youth librarians are about our professional organizations.
