From the American Library Association:
Taking ALA Publishing beyond its traditional market of library and information professionals, the American Library Association announces the launch of a new publishing imprint, Huron Street Press. In line with ALA’s mission to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all, Huron Street Press will publish a variety of titles designed to appeal to a broad consumer and library market. Its publications will harness the expertise of the Association, while encouraging library use among the public, joining other initiatives such as @ your library and ilovelibraries.
