ALA President Leslie Burger to speak on EPA Library closings at National Advisory Council meeting

On December 14 2006, ALA President Leslie Burger will speak at a meeting of the National Advisory Council for Environmental Policy and Technology on the impact of Environmental Protection Agency library closings.
