Join NELA Today

Each year the New England Library Association 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

Get involved!  NERTCL, the New England Roundtable of Teen and Children's Librarians, is looking for a new vice-chair.  This role will work with the chair to develop plans for the general membership as well as support NELA's annual conference.  This is a great opportunity to get to know youth services librarians from across New England and to be part of an active professional organization.  Please email [email protected] if you're interested in taking on this important role!
