Believe it or not, it's time to pass the ALA@UMD torch!

Join the executive board of the ALA Student Chapter at the University of Maryland in 2012-2013 to help create quality professional and social programming for your fellow classmates, while networking and having fun. We have over 70 members and counting ... help us grow and connect to our community!
