2016 PALS Group Project

The Pennsylvania Library Association  is pleased to announce the start of PaLAunchPod, a series of podcasts featuring Pennsylvania Librarians doing what they do best...being awesome! Do you know of someone in a Pennsylvania library who is doing fantastic things and needs to tell the world about it?  PaLAunchPod is seeking nominations for a series of interviews featuring incredible librarians and staff doing amazing programs, providing exceptional services, involving their community in their library- or vice versa. Perhaps there was a twist on the ordinary, a fortuitous turn of events, or an unexpected impact made by something done at your library, system or district. Do you know of someone that fits this description? Perhaps it is even you?

Please submit your nomination at Contact with questions.
