I signed up to get ALA News so I'd get their announcement on the Yahoo! Avatar READ t-shirts. It appeared first on their list of lots of news. That was cool.
But what I also learned from the ALA announcement was that there is an ALA site for the general public called "I Love Libraries." I'm sure its been around for some time, but I just learned about it! It was also a clever way to direct readers to their public site, with fun links and donation opportunities. Another link on this page is "Careers in Libraries." Another link is "Librarians on YouTube." ALA is really getting hip! What a perception changer... hummm.
