ALSC Awards Georgia Media Specialist

Congratulations to Georgia’s own Linda Martin!

 

Yesterday she received notice of winning the ALSC Louise Seaman Bechtel Fellowship from the American Library Association.

The Louise Seaman Bechtel Fellowship provides a $4,000 grant to a qualified children’s librarian to spend a month or more reading and studying at the Baldwin Library of the George A. Smathers Libraries, University of Florida, Gainesville.  The Baldwin Library contains a special collection of 85,000 volumes of children’s literature published mostly before 1950.  The fellowship is endowed in memory of Louise Seaman Bechtel and Ruth M. Baldwin. (ALA)

Linda will be searching for stories to tie into content areas in preparation for a book.
