RE: Introductions - enielsen - 07-23-2018

Hi all,
My name is Evan Nielsen, and while I am attending RIPL as a participant, I don't work for a public library or state agency.  I work at the American Institutes for Research, where I direct the Public Libraries Survey for IMLS.  I'm interested both in learning more about library research and in offering advice to fellow RIPL participants about survey research.  I live in Chicago, and I enjoy biking and watching my kids learn to enjoy biking!  Looking forward to meeting you next week!

I'm Teri DeVoe from the Institute of Museum and Library Services in Washington, DC.  I lead the Grants to States program that many in the field recognize as "LSTA" (Library Services and Technology Act).  I've been hearing about RIPL for years, but I'm a first-time attendee and excited to participate!

Hi, I am Bobbie Grooms from Marlboro County Library in Bennettsville, SC. I am the Library Director for our county, and I look forward to learning and meeting each of you at RIPL. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, anything outdoors (except in the peak heat of these southern summers), and creating new "things" from old stuff!

Smile See y'all next week!
