BCALAmember in the News: SD Harris

Congratulations again to S.D. Harris, our BCALA-CT Past President and Head of Children's Services at the Norwalk Public Library on her receiving a Community Action Award!

"On Friday, October 19, 2007, children's librarian Sherelle Harris was surprised with a community action award from the anti-poverty agency Norwalk Economic Opportunity Now, or NEON. The award included a plaque which reads “For Outstanding Service to the Community and Making a Difference in the Lives of Others.” The award was accompanied by an official citation from Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and a public leadership citation from Connecticut State Treasurer Denise L. Nappier.

This is Sherelle's second award this year. In August she received the BCALA national award for library advocacy serving multicultural communities."
