*I’m honored to be asked by People to People and the American Library
Association to lead a tour to India November 2-11, 2014. *I’ve been
working with international libraries for 20 years, particularly in Bulgaria
and other countries in Eastern Europe and I’m co-founder of the
International Library Cultural Exchange Interest Group of the Colorado
Association of Libraries. We are very pleased to have CAL’s support in our
expanded work with international libraries.
I’m excited to lead this tour because it combines visits to cultural sites
and interacting with our librarian colleagues in India. People to People
tours always create wonderful opportunities for networking and expanding
our understanding of the successes and challenges of our library colleagues
around the world.
