Sarah Erwin, Assistant Director, Kirkwood Public Library (MO) – Youth services with a punch (and an impact on the bottom line).

Tony Tallent, Director of Youth and Outreach Services, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County (PLCMC) – launched the Tricycle Music Fest  for young children and their parents.
