Librarian of the Year - A Personal Post

Recently, I (Shari Stack, Your School Librarian!) was recognized as the 2013 Nassau BOCES School Library System’s School Librarian of the Year. The NBSLS award is granted annually to a New York State-certified library media specialist whose work, with and for students, serves as a model for his or her peers and an inspiration to those entering the profession.

I am so humbled to have been chosen for this award knowing that there were so many qualified applicants. Joining this list of past recipients, who I have long admired and respected, reveals the significance of this award. The plaque now hangs next to “The Jolly Roger,” our life-size pirate statue in the William S. Christy Memorial Library, welcoming students and reminding me of the many opportunities we have to make an impact.

On behalf of the Bellmore-Merrick community, thank you to NBSLS for continuing to support and encourage our library programs.
