Clovis-Carver Public Library
We at the Idaho Library Association extend our heartfelt thoughts to the librarians and community of Clovis, New Mexico.
Here is a message on the tragedy from ALA President, Jim Neal:
We are shocked and saddened by the shooting at the Clovis-Carver Public Library in New Mexico. We mourn those who were killed, and we offer our thoughts and prayers for the wounded, the families of the victims, the library staff, and the community. ALA offers its full support to Clovis-Carver Public Library, the New Mexico Library Association, and the New Mexico State Library as they deal with this senseless violence.
Unfortunately, we must all be prepared for violence in public places. While ALA encourages its members to work closely with local law enforcement and officials to prepare and train for violence prevention and response, we also provide resources to assist with this issue.
