New Year’s Greeting from Deirdre Brennan, RAILS Executive Director

Happy New Year to all RAILS members and other colleagues from the RAILS Board and staff! As I look back on 2021, I am so impressed at how all of our member libraries of all types and sizes continued to offer vital services to their communities despite the ongoing pandemic. Thank you for all you do to expand and promote library service and for your continued support of RAILS.

The entire RAILS staff and board look forward to continuing to collaborate and work with you in 2022 as we unveil our new strategic plan. The plan is based on extensive member feedback and will address the issues you have told us are so important to all libraries as we continue to move forward into the future. Stay tuned for more details coming soon. In the meantime, I hope you all have a healthy and happy 2022, and I look forward to seeing you virtually (and hopefully in person soon!) as we all continue to advance the cause of library service.
