The Rhode Island Library Association Executive Board is pleased to endorse Ed Garcia for President of the American Library Association.
Ed has been a leader in our organization for many years. As chair of our Legislative Action Committee, he has presented testimony at the State House, written bills, and secured key meetings with legislative leadership, the governor, and the Department of Education on important issues, such as state aid to libraries and support of school librarians. Ed has represented Rhode Island on a national level, working with our congressional delegation and as a regular attendee for National Library Legislative Day.
Ed is an informed, capable, and caring library leader, and will be a positive and visionary ALA president.
