I am so happy this week to be able to shine a spotlight on the work that some of our past NEO-RLS Rising Stars, Shooting Stars ,and Advocacy Award winners are doing within the region. The NEO-RLS Rising Star Award
was initiated in 2013 and the Shooting Star
Awards in 2020. During that time we have been in awe of the impact that our award winners have had on their libraries and communities. As we move toward the June 30th deadline for this year's awards, I encourage you to take a moment to look around your library and think about what has been achieved in the past few years and who has been responsible for moving ideas and initiatives forward effectively and successfully. With all that has to be done on a regular basis, it's sometimes easy to forget that there are indeed, stars in our midst. And, whether it's in acknowledging a fantastic idea or program, providing that needed boost of confidence, or helping someone know they have chosen the right career path, the NEO-RLS awards have clearly made an impact on our winners. Please nominate the stars in your library today! Together we are maximizing library potential.
Have a great rest of your week!
