Congratulations and thank you, new officers! Thank you officers who have just completed terms. And thank you to all of the officers maintaining your current posts.
We love our NHLA volunteers!
We had a Geisel Winner this year! The Ann Geisel Award of Merit went to Susan Brown of Derry Public Library.
These are excerpts from her nomination letters:
She is one of the smartest and most professional librarians I’ve met in my 20+ years working in libraries. One of the reasons I so enjoy her is that she is shares my interest in mentoring and nurturing young people entering the library profession. She is skilled at recognizing other staff member’s strengths and supporting them.
She is perhaps the most professional individual I have ever met…I’ve never known anyone in any profession who prepares better. Put another way, Susan does her homework! Without her unparalleled mentorship and guidance, it would have been extremely challenging, if not impossible, for me to arrive where I have today.
I hold Susan in the highest regard both personally and as a colleague. Her many professional achievements and contributions to the New Hampshire library community make her an ideal choice to receive this award.
I am a better Librarian and person for knowing Susan and I am proud to support her nomination for the Ann Geisel Award of Merit.
Congratulations, Susan! And thank you to the colleagues who recognized her excellence.
