New ALA committee for rural libraries

ALA has accepted the recommendations of the Task Force on Rural School, Tribal and Public Libraries and has formed a new Standing Committee. The Standing Committee on Rural School, Tribal, Native, and Public Libraries will be responsible for "addressing the needs of rural libraries, advocating for them, and collaborating with them." Not that ALA has been completely ignoring rural libraries to this point. ALA's Office for Literacy and Outreach Services (OLOS) has been maintaining a very helpful page of resources. I'm looking forward to seeing ALA expand their support for rural libraries. You can never have too much help! (Well, actually, yes you can, but we haven't reached that point yet.)
