Dr. DeLap Published in Alki Magazine

In an article published in The Washington Library Association Journal, Alki, St. Thomas School librarian Dr. Alpha DeLap recounts the twists and turns of her life's journey and shares how the failure to achieve one dream resulted in the discovery of her professional passion.

"I failed at becoming the academic that I dreamed of when I was 25 but now 20-plus years later, I know that all my training and experience has led me here, to a profession that gives me great hope and a sense of satisfaction each day."

Dr. DeLap's article, Tales of an Unexpected Librarian, can be found on page 23 in the March 2017 issue of Alki.
