Statement of Benefit from Natasha Hayes

2021 Florida Library Director’s Meeting 

Name of Recipient: Natasha Hayes
Institution: Henry County Cooperative Library Director
Date(s) of Event / Conference / Session: October 2021

I am extremely grateful to be a recipient of a scholarship from SWFLN as it allowed me to attend the Annual Florida Library Directors Meeting in Tallahassee this year. Without their generous scholarship program, I would not have been able to attend this event.

This annual meeting provided all Florida library directors several benefits such as:

  • The opportunities to remain abreast of current issues/successes that all libraries in Florida are experiencing
  • The ability to network with fellow librarians
  • The opportunity to meet with and learn pertinent operational information from the State of Florida Librarian, Amy Johnson
  • Learn additional tools and skills relative to our daily library operations as we broke into various sessions throughout the two-day meeting.

Once again I would like to thank the Southwest Florida Library Information Network for allowing me to attend this event through their scholarship program.
