Our bloggers are Patty, Andrea & Sonja with more coming. The ARSL blogs are designed to give our members and constituents a “voice” in current and emerging trends in rural and small libraries. The blogs are also an opportunity to contribute to and begin discussions about topics relevant to librarians and to help keep you informed about what our Board and ARSL members are doing in rural America.
We’d love to hear from you. Feel free to leave comments on any of our blog entries and share our work on your favorite social network like Twitter and Facebook.
