Carol Reid

Online and Data Services Librarian/Senior Editor
Trevecca Nazarene University/Randall House Pub

The Association of Christian Librarians has made remarkable impact in my work as a librarian both in professional development and professional contacts through the years. I want ACL to continue to cultivate those opportunities for librarians. I'm particularly concerned with retention of new members and recognition of our volunteers. I have a heart for librarians who serve small institutions with small budgets, but I also understand the challenges of larger libraries and staffs.​

The Association endeavors to meet the needs of its members. The last year has been one of intense need and the fallout from COVID-19 will continue to affect our members at every level.  I see us continuing to creatively connect people and help them build professional relationships that can see them through these hard times and help them grow.  As VP, I would continue to foster those relationships and look for new ways to improve relationships and strengthen the members.
