About the Public Library Division
The PLD maintains a website at pldpala.wordpress.com. The site’s content and design are based on results from a survey conducted by PLD in the fall of 2011. Many thanks to those who responded to PLD’s survey and to the 2011 PALS graduates - Linda Filkosky, Kathy Kline, Sylvia Orner, Stephanie Sharon and Martina Soden - who created and designed the site.
Visitors to the site will note pages about training and events, including continuing education opportunities; lists of previous PLD-sponsored PaLA Annual Conference sessions’ presenters; a list of PLD’s current and previous officers and the division’s bylaws; and a section on PA Forward. A forthcoming section will provide space for idea sharing and networking among librarians.
Content is still being added to the site, so visit often!
The Public Library Division offers these volunteer opportunities:
- Work with the Division to solicit and review programs for the annual conference
- Moderate Division sponsored programs
- Plan PLD activities
