Jeanie Sluck, director of the Taylor Community Library, was received the Pennsylvania Library Association’s Certificate of Merit during the association’s annual conference last week in Pittsburgh.
“Jeanie exemplifies what a library director can be in today’s world, and she is a role model for her peers in libraries across the state,” says the document submitted by two of her colleagues in support of her nomination for the award.
“She operates a busy, welcoming library, and she is an ardent participant in the life of her community. She collaborates with others in the library profession, and she regularly demonstrates the value that libraries bring to partnerships,” it read.
In addition to her leadership of the Taylor Community Library, Jeanie coordinates county-wide events for the Lackawanna County Library System, and has led efforts to build collaborative opportunities between the Library System and community partners like the Scranton Cultural Center, the Everhart Museum, the Steamtown National Historic Site, and others.
PaLA is professional association of more than 1,300 librarians who work in public, school and college libraries throughout the state.
