New ALA president’s Web site

10:04 am American Library Association

On July 2 my old ALA president-elect’s Web site came down and was replaced by a new ALA president’s Web site. It remains at the same URL. It repeats the design of the old site but has been reorganized to highlight the president’s activities. The newest item at the site is an audio recording, made in a studio prior to the event. of my July 1 American Library Association inaugural address. To listen click on “Listen to and watch Jim.”

New Web siteTo set the tone and establish the theme for my inaugural speech, a fife and drum corps opened the ceremony and Benjamin Franklin, played by an interpreter, welcomed the audience and reflected on his love of reading and his contribution to the genesis of the library movement in America.

I am honored to serve as ALA’s president for 2008-09. I will do my best to honor the great trust my fellow ALA members have placed in me.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!

    Thyroid shields most often have hook and loop fasteners to secure them behind
    the neck and come using a ring and tether for attaching to an apron.
    Depression could cause impaired judgment and fatigue.
    Fasting does change blood chemistry so it can
    have adverse affects with certain medications.
