Blueprint for Change

Everyone knows that change is inevitable.  Today, I’d like to focus on two types of change in relation to ALSC.  First, the change that happens inadvertently as the result of a sudden unexpected series of events.  And then, there is the other type of change, the one that is the outcome of a concerted plan.  Both, when they concur in the same time period, can have a definitive and lasting effect in the life of an organization.

Greetings. Let’s Engage.

Greetings! Saludos! I’m Lucia Gonzalez, 2021-22 ALSC President, and I have a confession to make:  I have never written a blog post.  This is my very first post and I look forward to our future conversations about ALSC, children’s librarianship, or the world in general.  I would like to dedicate my initial President’s blog post to the subject of engagement.  The word engagement in Spanish is compromiso, such as when two people promise themselves to one another in the step before marriage.  It also means commitment, undertaking, obligation, pledge and promise.
