A Group to Know About: Maricopa Library Council

Posted by Editor on March 20, 2009

dsc_0256I had the wonderful opportunity to meet the members of the Maricopa Library Council yesterday, at a meeting at the Desert Foothills Library in beautiful uptown (downtown? ) Carefree. It is absolutely stunning!

The Council is composed of library directors from across the valley and included our State Librarian and the directors of ASU, Phoenix, Glendale, Scottsdale, Peoria, Tolleson, Avondale, Maricopa County LD, Chandler, Mesa Libraries, and more.  I very much enjoyed meeting them all and hearing their updates.  Three committees do much of the work of the Council:  Continuing Education, Tech Talk and Adult Services.  They just launched a Wiki at:  http://www.mclcaz.org/

I was invited and was pleased to attend on behalf of you, the students and friends of the SIRLS program in Phoenix.  I updated them as to our gatherings and issues, and they asked me to convey to you their best wishes and strong support of  you as you identify and  define your career goals.  They continue to be pleased to offer you learning opportunities and look forward to offering you jobs as the economy recovers and their budgets improve.  They meet again in June; please tell me anything you would like to be brought to their attention.
