A new episode of the PALaunchPod podcast dropped on October 13. In this episode, host Tom Berman talks with Samantha Hull, Ephrata High School Librarian & Media Coordinator for the Ephrata School District in Lancaster County, PA about her experiences as a 2017 ALA Emerging Leader. 

Hull shares how she became one of only fifty Emerging Leaders chosen this year from across the nation, and how the sponsorship of the Pennsylvania Library Association enabled her to participate fully in the many conferences, webinars and responsibilities required of an Emerging Leader. Berman and Hull discuss the impact of the program on her career and the contributions Hull has made as a result of being an Emerging Leader, including exciting new developments in the works for Ephrata School District students.
