Association for Rural & Small Libraries - Join NOW!

[Did you know that the majority of libraries in the United States are Rural? - I didn't know either..and I work in one...But since I attended the 2009 ARSL Conference in Gatlinburg, TN - and JOINED as a member of this group - I know that fact and many more facts that will allow me to better assist my community]
