Plain City, OH, February 08, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The Catholic Library Association together with the Junior Library Guild established a grant in 2007 in memory of Sally Daly, SSJ, an ardent supporter of recruiting new members to CLA and its Children’s Library Services Section. The purpose of the $1,500 grant is to enable a new member of CLA’s Children’s Library Services Section to attend CLA’s annual convention, which in 2017, will take place in St. Louis, MO on April 18–20. Nominees were received by the CLA Scholarship Committee and Angie Bush, a librarian at St. Anne Catholic School in Bristol, VA has been named the 2017 grant recipient.
Bush states, “The CLA listserv, Catholic Library World, and my membership assist me in making lessons, purchases, and goals for my school library that are aligned with the Church’s teaching and the consensus curriculum of the Richmond, VA Diocese.”
Bush is a member of the Virginia Association of School Librarians, the Southwest Virginia State Reading Association, and serves on Virginia’s Reader’s Choice committee. She earned her Library Media Certification from the University of Virginia College at Wise in 2011.
“Sister Sally was a big proponent of Junior Library Guild for years—sharing her experiences with our company and our service with hundreds of her fellow Catholic educators. Creating this grant program was a natural and obvious way for us to honor her memory,” says Andrew Thorne, V.P., Marketing. “While we’ve always been supportive of the Catholic school community, we’ve recently introduced a number of products and services that make it even easier for Catholic educators to get high quality, new-release books that meet their standards for content for their libraries.”
