I am the founder of a group called Young Arkansas Library Professionals. This group meets monthly for dinner, has networking events at state conference, and provides a unofficial voice for those new to the profession. We share educational and job opportunities with each other, as well as use each other as sounding boards for new ideas.
As the founder of this group, I am super excited to see that we are featured on page 6 of American Libraries. The picture shown in this article depicts us at a downtown Little Rock, AR bar during the Arkansas Library Association Conference. We were so glad to welcome Molly Raphael to join us for a night of young librarian fun!
You can find more information about our group on our website or on our facebook page.
