ALA President Julie B. Todaro writes: “In my columns and interviews over the past eight months of my presidency, I have focused primarily on ALA’s values and the values of our profession. As a result, I invariably receive a myriad of emphatic emails from people who often tell me that I can’t tell them how to think or what to value. And they are correct. I can’t tell them what to believe in—nor would I want to. What I am doing is articulating that in this profession, we have shared core values.”
