Hello there,


This seems like a good opportunity to state that I will no longer be affiliated with the Michigan Center for the Book either.  I feel certain that the Library of Michigan staff will notify the appropriate LOC staff members and designate a replacement. 


I was my greatest pleasure meeting all of you and I learned a great deal.  I can be found on Facebook as Edwina A. Murphy or you can always email me at [log in to unmask].


It would be great to stay in touch,





Edwina A. Murphy

Hello Sharon and Karen!


It’s with mixed emotion that I share with you that I am leaving NSLAPR, effective November 4, 2016, although I will not be available on November 4, 2016.  I am excited to begin a new adventure with the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District.  


Tammy Westergard, Assistant Administrator, and I are working tirelessly to ensure a seamless transition, she can be reached at [log in to unmask].  I will continue to be an ambassador for all the great work NSLAPR and the Nevada Center for the Book will do to impact libraries in Nevada. 


It has been wonderful serving as a member of this group and working with all the talented and wonderful people at the Library of Congress Center for the Book and all of the affiliate Centers across the country, you all are so inspirational and have such amazing talent.  I’ll miss all of you.
