Many of you might be interested in the Progressive Librarians’ Guild as well.   I used to belong to this organization and they are a great socially conscious group of librarians.

Remember that discussion we were having about diversity and social justice in libraries?  Well, now is the time to really start working on this and one way to do this is to develop a strong Social Responsibilities Round Table (SRRT) within OLA.

What we really need is someone who can step forward and chair SRRT.  I can't do this but I will give support to anyone who can.  If Candice can appoint a chair for now then elections can be held later as the task force grows.

I have just created a Facebook page for OLA SRRT as one place where ideas and easy discussion can take place and issues can be shared.  Maybe some of you would like to join,  www.facebook.com/OLASRRT<https://www.facebook.com/OLASRRT>.

Hello SRRT members! I'm wondering if you would like to elect a SRRT chair for this coming year. There was some recent energy around the state on the topic of diversity in the library profession and, as a result of that discussion, some interest in revitalizing this roundtable. So, I wanted to touch base with you about that.

It's up to you, but I think it would be great to have this roundtable going strong again. If there is interest, let me know if I can help in some way.
