The evening meeting attendees on November 17th learned about one of our newer members professional travels. Recently inducted member Tiffany Snider visited Dubai and Sharjah, U.A.E. for the annual American Library Association Conference and Book Fair. She shared her photos and stories at the November 17th meeting. She had the opportunity to be involved in a movement to promote worldwide literacy in the library realm with a little bit of tourism on the side. Tiffany works as a librarian with Wake County Government and is currently working on her master’s degree in library science. This trip to Dubai served in both her career and educational life as well as her own interest in international access to reading materials.
