Member Spotlight

Thanks to the many interests our sections represent, LLAMA has a diverse membership including new librarians, directors, HR professionals, architects, fundraisers, and more.  Each month the Membership Committee will feature one of these members in the Member Spotlight.  It's a great way for you to you meet your colleagues and find members with similar interests.

To see yourself in the spotlight, just send an email to the Membership Committee with some basic information.  A member of the committee will then follow up with you.  It only takes a minute and the committee would love to hear from you. 

Current Member Spotlight:

Professional experience, particularly LLAMA activities

Why you would recommend LLAMA to a colleague:

As the place for library leaders, I find answers to questions that I am having and resources for moving forward at my Library.

Tell us about your pets:

 Three cats – Ivan, Rupert and Eva and a dog, Rocky

What is your favorite music album of all time?

What a tough question! As I write this, my favorite album is Paul Weller’s “Wildwood,” or Neil Young and Crazy Horse’s “Ragged Glory,” or Mudhoney’s “Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge.”  … so tough to choose
