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.

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?
The Board of Trustees of Southeastern NY Library Resources Council has opened the nomination period for the 2018 award. This award is designed to recognize an outstanding member library, cultural heritage organization, program, service, or staff member.
