Happy National Library Workers Day!

The ALA Allied Professional Association (ALA-APA) has promoted National Library Workers day since June 24, 2003. During the 2002–2003 Annual Conference in Toronto, Canada, the resolution was approved by the ALA Council to honor library workers on National Library Workers Day, which will be held on the Tuesday of National Library Week each year.

This year the ALA-APA hosted a webinar through the Dynix Institute, "Making the Connection: How Salaries Affect Recruitment in Libraries" featuring ALA President Carol Brey-Casiano who introduced the program and gave a “state of the industry” analysis of how the library world is changing in relation to the economy and the population. The groundbreaking film, “Working @ Your Library: For Love or Money?” was shown.
