Kellie Barbato

Director of Lineberger Memorial Library
Lenoir-Rhyne University

As a first-time candidate for the position of Director-at-large, my vision for the Association is developing. If elected to the Board, I would be honored to be among those who have been members longer than I have and learn more about the nuts and bolts of the Association. My learnings as I serve on the Board would continue to inform the development of my vision for the Association. For now, all I can say with certainty is that God is doing great things for the librarianship profession through ACL and I would love to be a part of that work by serving on the Board.
