ALA Elects Its 2020–2021 President

Julius C. Jefferson Jr., section head of the Congressional Research Service (CRS) at the Library of Congress and an active ALA member for the past 15 years, will be the 2020–2021 ALA president. He serves as president-elect until the end of ALA’s annual conference in 2020. (Wanda Brown is ALA’s 2019–2020 president.)

He says in a statement, “Together we will collaborate to strengthen our core values of equity, diversity, and inclusion; advocacy; leadership and professional development; and information policy, and address the internal and external challenges. … It is my vision that together we will transform ALA into a modern library association, ensuring that libraries remain at the center of public engagement and enrich the lives of the communities we serve.”
