Christopher Harris Writes About why he's running for Council.
Though it will be a rough road that will need to be mapped as we proceed, I do think we are on the right road in seeking positive changes that maintain the position of libraries as centers for all types of information. As Godin reminds us in a phrase that mirrors Berry’s concerns about the devaluation of library services: “If it were any other way, it would be easy. And if it were any other way, everyone would do it and your work would ultimately be devalued [Godin].” For our work as librarians not to be devalued, we need to change. And, ALA Council must change.
