A Note from Jen and Jane
We've seen some great things happening in our system lately and thought this might be a good time to encourage each of you to celebrate your work. Please consider sharing your expertise at an upcoming conference or nominate a colleague for an award. Many opportunities exist through NYLA, SSL, and other organizations.
