Here is a letter from Martha Buckner, ABOS President, from the Ingural Edition of the newsletter:

Dear ABOS Friend,

Greetings and welcome to the inaugural edition of ABOS’s quarterly electronic newsletter.  In this first edition we celebrate National Bookmobile Day, National Library Week, and National Poetry Month.  As an ongoing mission, we would like to expand our audience and share our message of library outreach to all persons and organizations who wish to enhance their professional skills as well as enrich their diverse patron base through best practices and innovative offerings.  A recent blog post of mine regarding outreach services recounts some of the history and mission of our organization and outreach services in general.  The newsletter will publish articles like this from its membership and will strive to offer interesting and relevant content to this very unique audience.  We welcome any feedback you may have and certainly welcome future editorial contributions and ideas.  I also welcome you to sign-up for the ABOS annual conference ABOS Conference “Laissez les bons temps rouler!”–  “Let the Good Times Roll” in Baton Rouge LA – October 9-11, 2013. 2013 ABOS Conference Registration

As a last note, I remind you to please consider your membership in our important organization.  If you haven’t already joined or renewed your annual membership, please consider doing so at ABOS Membership Enrollment Form .  Without your ongoing support, programs such as this newsletter would not be possible.  We are always seeking new members who believe in our mission, so using the link at the bottom of this newsletter, please feel free to forward this email to anybody who you think might be interested in ABOS or in becoming a member.
