Reading is Critical to our Communities

No one other than Nancy Pearl has so convinced Americans that libraries, books, and reading are critical to our communities.
Her work has reinforced reading via libraries as essential and empowering for all people. Her innovation in training has deepened the book skills of library workers. Her public outreach has effectively promoted libraries well beyond library walls, broadening the public’s perception of the purpose of libraries. All of these efforts have earned her recognition as LJ’s 2011 ­Librarian of the Year.
