Conable Scholar Barbakoff an LJ Mover, Shaker

Posted By Jonathan M. Kelley, Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Audrey Barbakoff, 2011 recipient of FTRF's Gordon M. Conable Conference Scholarship, was named last week one of Library Journal's "Movers and Shakers" for 2013.  Under the category "Change Agents," the magazine made specific mention of the "Radical Home Economics" program she has implemented at Bainbridge Island Library and the "Ferry Tales" book club for Puget Sound commuters.

Last year, Barbakoff was named an ALA Emerging Leader, one of two sponsored by the Public Library Association.

Applications for the 2013 Conable Conference Scholarship are open through April 5.  As Audrey said in her report to the FTRF Board:

[The Conable Scholarship] was an incredible opportunity for me not only to attend my first ALA annual conference, but also to experience ALA in a different and deeper way than I would have on my own.

Congratulations, Audrey, and keep up the great work!
