PLS Annual Meeting Recap

by Lauren Moore, Executive Director

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2017 Pioneer Library System Annual Meeting. The event was a complete success with over 140 attendees! 

At this year's meeting...

We were pleased to welcome Christine Ryan of Livingston County and Carolyn Bradstreet of Wayne County to serve on the PLS Board for 5-year terms beginning January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2022. 

Our keynote speaker, Mara Ahmed, gave a beautiful talk about physical and metaphorical walls/borders and how libraries could help dismantle them. Mara is an Iranian Filmmaker whose most recent film, A Think Wall (2015) explores the partition of India and possibilities of reconciliation. 

We congratulated seven award winners: 
  • Library Visionary Award - Nancy Burns, Stevens Memorial Community Library
  • Library Innovator Award - The Macedon Public Library Youth Services Team
  • Community Impact Award - Ingrid Welch, Center for Dispute Settlement
  • Community Impact Award - Geneva Reads
  • Library Champion of the Year Award - Jim Myers, Victor-Farmington Library Board of Trustees President
  • Ludlum-Holroyd Award - Margaret Grosse, Bell Memorial Library Trustee
  • Ontario County Library Advocate of the Year Award - Elly Dawson
And we recognized Senator Pam Helming for her steadfast support of libraries.

Thank you so much to everyone who made this year's annual meeting a success.
