The Americans for Libraries Council will hold the first annual Voices for America’s Libraries Awards at a special reception at the Grolier Club in New York City on Friday, March 30th. This year’s awardees are four prominent individuals who through their work have shown a deep commitment to supporting community access to literature and libraries.
- Peter J Gomes, Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church Harvard University.
- Sybil Jacobson, President and CEO, the MetLife Foundation
- Susan Jacoby, author, journalist
- Fred Kent, President, Project for Public Spaces
The first annual Voices for America’s Libraries Awards should be an interesting and edifying event, as well as a chance to learn more about getting involved with a well-respected national institution.
