On July 30, 2016 I will be participating in Grimaldo's Mile Swim in Brooklyn, New York to help raise funds for ALA’s Spectrum Scholarship program.
I will be swimming in memory of Lynn Taylor, former Supervising Librarian at New York Public Library's New Amsterdam Branch and president of New York Public Library Guild Local 1930. Lynn was an activist who worked tirelessly to support library staff and serve all New Yorkers. This article provides additional information about her professional life: http://www.dc37.net/news/pep/7_2014/1930_lynn_taylor.html.
I am delighted to continue my annual tradition of raising funds for the Spectrum Scholarship Program while honoring the memory of librarians who have contributed to their communities. Thank you in advance for helping me build strong communities through building the library profession.
