Technical Services Round Table of PaLA… and Oh Yeah! Happy New Academic Year!

August 28, 2019

As I write this, I am observing an amazing sunset from my second-story living room window and taking in the beauty of the transformation from summer to autumn. As someone who adores pumpkin pie, hot cocoa, Thursday night football, and cooler weather, it should come as no surprise that I enjoy this time of year and the fresh start to the academic year that comes along with it. School is now in session and students and faculty have returned. Since this is my first time experiencing the start to the academic school year at my current job at Lehigh Carbon Community College, I am excited to assist with assignments and to answer the general directional inquiry.

Additionally, the voting came to an end on August 10th for various positions throughout the round tables of the Pennsylvania Library Association. I am so excited to report that starting on January 1, 2020, I will be starting my role as Vice-Chair to the Technical Services Round Table of the PaLA. After a year, I will then segue into the position of Chair. This two-year position and commitment have me looking forward to the challenges that it will bring, but I am eager to learn more about my profession and hope that it gives my career a boost. If time and money are in agreement with me (as is usually not the case, much to my chagrin), I intend on attending several conferences throughout Pennsylvania during my two-year stint, including the Leadership Orientation conference held this year on December 9th and 10th. (To my knowledge, I am not informed of the location of this particular conference – does anyone know?) Here’s to a productive and fulfilling 2019-2020 academic year and perhaps meeting one or two of you at a future PaLA conference!
