More about Melanie's interest and work below:

For 23 years, I’ve combined my passion for racial equity and education, experiences in the arts, strategic planning and human-centered design, into a career that has allowed me to collaborate with smart people at home and around the globe. If elected, I will bring all of these talents, connections and experiences to the board leadership and talented staff of the Public Library Association. I will work to create a strong future for the organization and give voice to the innovation and hard work that occurs every day in public libraries in every community.

When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this- you haven't.

Look forward to chatting in Nashville at the PLA 2020 Conference. Come see me and friends at the Exhibit Hall, in the Non-Profit area.

Share this site to support Melanie and remind your PLA friends to VOTE, March 9th-April 1.
