The NYLA Voice Has a New Columnist!!!

Congratulations to our Library Branch Manager, Beth Hadley and her new column in The NYLA Voice, a publication of the New York Library Association. Her column “Creative Community Corner” will explore ways to cultivate creativity, community, and connections. Beyond connecting people with materials, it will consider how to forge connections between people and their community, people and their creativity, people and other people. With a focus on collaboration and the philosophy that great things can happen when nobody cares who gets the credit, this column intends to provide inspiration and encouragement to cultivate imagination and develop a creative community.

Be sure to check it out. And again, Congrats to Beth!
