For Raymond Pun, Ed.D. ’07C, ’13G—a double alumnus of St. John’s University and first-generation college graduate—April 8, 2024, will always be memorable. That was when he learned he was elected the next President of the American Library Association (ALA) and will lead the organization during its 150th anniversary year.

“I look forward to connecting with so many folks who are interested in being involved in ALA, whether that’s serving on a committee or working on a project, and being a mentor and coaching other people and fostering those connections,” he said.
