“Initially, I felt it was a professional right-of-passage and responsibility to join ACRL, and over time I’ve come to deeply appreciate the community of colleagues as well as the professionalism and advocacy of the organization. These are my people, and it’s great to have access to this network of talented, committed professionals who are eager and willing to share their expertise and efforts in service of librarianship and our patrons.” ~ Joan Ruelle, ACRL member since 1997“I joined ACRL at the suggestion of a colleague who had recently completed the Immersion Program. As a member of ACRL, I found my home within ALA. In a nutshell, I value the resources, learning opportunities and interaction with my peers that ACRL provides me.” ~ Nancy Fawley, ACRL member since 2008
