July 2000 issue of Trustee

Nominations are being accepted for the Velma Moore Award. This prestigious award is presented each year by NYSALB to a deserving recipient who has demonstrated exemplary contributions to the development of library services in New York State. Nominees may be trustees,library boards, or any group of library organizations or supporters.

The Award was established in 1962 to honor the memory of Velma Moore who worked actively for the improvement of New York State library services from 1947 until her death in 1961. As one of the chartered members of the Library Trustees Foundation of New York State (predecessor of NYSALB), she served two terms as Foundation President and was a member since its inception. Velma Moore also served as a trustee of the Kenmore Public Library located near Buffalo, NY, for thirty-three years and was the wife of Lieutenant Governor Frank C. Moore.

The Velma Moore Award presentations will take place during the Inaugural Banquet and Awards Ceremony at the NYLA/NYSALB Year 2000 Conference in Saratoga Springs, NY. The award recipient is personally recognized and honored for the measurable involvement given to the advancement of effective library service. Along with the recipient's honorable recognition, a cash prize and crystal award are donated to the library or library service of winning recipient's choice.

Last year's Velma Moore Award winner was Janice Allen, Director of the Paine Memorial Free Library, Willsboro, NY.

Nominations may be submitted to the Velma Moore Award Committee by mail to NYSALB, 3 Douglas Avenue, Rensselaer, NY 12144. The letter of nomination should include name & address of nominee, library affiliation, and reason for nomination (250 words maximum). The deadline for receipt of nominations is August 15, 2000.
