Nina Lindsay Elected ALSC President; Nina Lindsay, children’s services coordinator, Oakland (California) Public Library (OPL), has been elected vice president/president-elect of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the American Library Association (ALA). Nina is a long-time ACL member, too!
“It’s an exciting time for ALSC, and I am honored to be elected to serve,” Lindsay said. “I’m looking forward to listening to and learning from members and stakeholders, who work so hard every day to ensure that libraries serve all children and their caregivers. I’m grateful for the opportunity to advocate on their behalf, and to work for effective collaboration toward this goal.”
Lindsay earned an MLIS in 1996 from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She began her career as a children’s librarian in 1996 at OPL, where she later served as manager of the Main Library Children’s Room before taking on the role of children’s services coordinator. Congratulations to this great leader.
