CHICAGO —There’s nothing like attending a library conference or workshop to spark new interest, excitement and motivation in a library employee. That’s why Pat Carterette, a former Staff Development specialist, was always in the forefront of encouraging people to sign up, go…learn something new!

In her memory and to help further that legacy, the Learning Round Table of the American Library Association is offering the Pat Carterette Professional Development Grant. The grant winner will be awarded up to $1,000 to attend a continuing education event. Monies can be used to cover registration, travel, lodging or other expenses.

How can you win? Simply fill out an online application before Dec. 15, 2014.

The grant award winner will be announced shortly after ALA Midwinter Conference in January, 2015.

In honor of Pat’s spirit of learning, apply today!
