Here at the Free Library we’ve had a wonderful few days celebrating how incredibly dedicated (and awesome!) our children’s librarians are. We got so much wonderful feedback from this heartwarming article that ran in the Inquirer, detailing how two children’s librarians, Elizabeth Corbett (Charles Santore Branch) and Heather Warren (Whitman Branch), helped one of their customers—an eight-year-old boy named Hieu—get a new bike after his was stolen. We hope you’ll take the time to check it out.
In addition, we’ve just received word that Robin Muldor, the Children’s Librarian at the Kensington Branch, won a 2011 Pennsylvania Library Association (PaLA) Best Practices Award for her program, “Kensington Library Read Across America Celebrates Dr. Seuss’s Birthday.” The PaLA boasts that her work “is clear evidence of the fact that Pennsylvania’s libraries serve our youngest Pennsylvanians and their families.”
Kudos to our incredible children's librarians!
