Liberty (Libby) Switzer recipient of Association of Christian Librarians Research Award

The Association of Christian Librarians Research Award was instituted in 2006 to allow member institutions to reward an outstanding student researcher.  The nominee must excel in research, display outstanding characteristics, and demonstrate record of leadership, ability and Christian character.   Annually each institution may nominate a student at each degree level to receive the award.  The award is a printed certificate.  Waggoner Library includes a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card and presents the award at Trevecca's annual awards chapel, held this year April 26, 2012.

This year's recipient was nominated by Dr. David Diehl.   He states that Libby "has demonstrated her commitment to research in music history class by producing high quality, well-documented and thoroughly written papers.  She takes her time and has been thorough and thoughtful in completing assignments in listening and studying composers' biography.  Liberty is a very talented musician of flute and voice who has demonstrated leadership in the ensembles she has participated in, the department by example, and in her local church."   Waggoner Library congratulates Libby on receiving this honor!

Every day, people of all ages and backgrounds from rural, suburban and urban communities across the country turn to their libraries to find jobs or go online, to get help with homework or complex research projects, to start on a business plan, connect with their kids or simply find a space to relax. For every person who loves libraries, there is a story about what the library means to them.  We want to collect and share your stories!

In 500 words or less, tell us a story of what the library has meant to you. All entries will be recognized on the library website and displayed in Library during the celebration of National Library Week, April 16-21, 2012.
