THE STORY:

American Library Association wrote -

Librarians wield a great power in the world, which is the trust of their users. To nurture and engage this trust, we should show users that no matter who they are, they matter to the library. And shouldn’t they see themselves in their librarians? Alice Son – ALA Spectrum Scholar (2015)

Our mission is to increase the number of ethnically diverse professionals working as leaders in the field of library and information science to best position libraries at the heart of today’s culturally diverse communities.

The American Library Association’s Spectrum Scholarship provides 50-60 students a year with a $5,000 monetary award for expenses associated with obtaining a master’s degree or library media certification from an ALA-accredited program; free student membership in ALA; free travel and lodging to support attendance in a Spectrum Leadership Institute; and free admission to ALA’s annual conference. 

The power of the crowd is real. Add your voice by donating to the ALA Spectrum Scholarship Program today and consider setting up your own CrowdRise page in support of this unique and vital program.

A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people. It is a never failing spring in the desert.  Andrew Carnegie

Join us in recruiting library leaders committed to their community.
