ALA President @loidagarciafebo had a busy 2018 traveling the world to spread the word that Libraries = Strong Communities!

Video! Here's a lovely video with a selection of photos from 2018 at libraries, meetings, conferences and rallys for libraries. It was tough to select the few photos required to stay within the one minute+ for Instagram. I will post a more extended video with more photos on my other networks sometime before the end of the year. ❤️❤️📚 •
