#alaac16 #alacouncil III – Memorials and Tributes

Before I get into the main write up of Council III, I wanted to share what memorials and tributes we passed in ALA Council because I think they should stand on their own.



There was a poignant moment after the names of the people memorialized were read aloud. A Councilor who was a personal mentee of Charles Weld Robinson used a “point of personal privilege” to read his entire memorial resolution so would be in the actual meeting recording. I had encouraged her to do this when I learned how deeply she felt his loss to her and to public librarians generally. Some things are definitely worth taking time away from Council.
