Join NELA Today

Each year NELA awards the Emerson Greenaway Award to an individual who has provided distinguished service in librarianship.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NELA made the decision not to present this award in 2020, as we did not feel there was a proper way to acknowledge and honor the contributions of a librarian deserving of this award under the circumstances.  As a result, we are pleased to present two outstanding individuals with this honor in 2021.

Jennifer Alvino: Director of the Windham Public Library in Windham, Maine
Edward Garcia: Director of the Cranston Public Library in Cranston, RI
