How do you support to libraries/librarians? Working for a consortium gives me the opportunity to provide technical support to member schools so library staff are able to help their patrons.

One thing I wish I had know as a beginning librarian . . .is the privilege to interact with other librarians from all over the world. I am thankful for that opportunity.

What do you value about ACL? I am grateful for relationships with librarians through ACL that continue to develop. The incredible conversations through discussion list are extremely helpful. I am thankful for the prayer support and the ability to be able to laugh with and be encouraged by ACL librarians.

How were you introduced to ACL? Through a librarian at Dallas Theological Seminary and my first semester in library school.

How are you or have you been involved in ACL? I have been able to attend three annual conferences and participated in the daily prayer walks each year. I presented a poster presentation at the 2017 ACL Annual Conference. I also enjoy writing book reviews for The Christian Librarian.

ACL turns the spotlight on members to highlight how they are making a difference and how they have benefited from ACL membership. This is an opportunity for ACL members to share their story with colleagues, inspire future librarians, and strengthen awareness of the profession and association.
