This March, as part of this year’s theme of Outreach to Public Libraries, the LLNE Service Committee offered two scholarships for public librarians in the New England area to attend LLNE’s Introduction to Legal Research Program. The five week program introduces participants to key resources and skills necessary for legal research; it was our hope that public librarians could use this knowledge to serve their diverse patron base.
We are proud to announce that the Committee has awarded the scholarships to Philip Peck, Reference Librarian and Webmaster at the Somerville Public Library in Somerville, Massachusetts, and Jean Slavkovsky, Information Librarian at the Malden Public Library in Malden, Massachusetts.
Congratulations to Philip and Jean!
In conjunction with the LLNE Outreach to Public Libraries Service Initiative, we are sponsoring a book drive to collect a mini-collection of law books to donate to a Connecticut public library in need.
Donations of books or funds will be collected at the Spring Meeting. New books are preferred, but recently superseded editions withdrawn from your own library’s collections are also welcome. Checks may be made payable to LLNE and specify “Public Libraries Book Drive” in the memo field.
Details and a wish list of titles are available at the Spring Meeting website.
