2018 Twila Snead Award

The Twila Snead Award for Excellence was established in 2014 to celebrate Southeastern members who express leadership in the field of librarianship, create innovative services, develop programs that enhance the lives of those in underserved communities, provide unique services, and/or improve physical facilities. It is named in honor of a woman who embodied those qualities during twenty years of service at St Luke’s Cornwall Hospital Library.

Accessible parking is available in front of the building, and spots for our gruop will be reserved with cones. If these spots are full, there is ample parking in the North Lot, which is 1/3 of a mile from the main building.

Parking near the building fills quickly,
give yourself enough time to park and walk!

Event Details

Friday, June 1st from 9:00am - 1:00pm
This year's meeting will be held at
Vassar College, Villard Room in the Main Building
Featuring James LaRue, Director Office for Intellectual Freedom, American Library Association and Executive Director, The Freedom to Read Foundation, who will present a keynote presentation on Intellectual Freedom, Social Justice, and the Signs of the Times.

Intellectual freedom is one of the core values of librarianship. But it hasn’t always been so. And it has been facing new challenges lately. Today, not only books are challenged. Libraries, schools, and universities have been attacked for their programs, exhibits, displays, and even databases. How should today’s librarians navigate a world in which there is both support for social justice, and profound attempts to silence dissent?
