Octavia Fellin Public Library Receives National Medal for Museum and Library Service

| May 21, 2014 | 0 Comments

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the primary source of federal funding for our nation’s museums and libraries, awarded the Octavia Fellin Public Library as one of 10 recipients of this year’s National Medal for Museum and Library Service. The award is the nation’s highest honor given to museums and libraries for service to the community and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.  Click here for more information.

Octavia Fellin Public Library was chosen as a recipient for serving and supporting the Gallup community. As you probably know, the population Octavia Fellin serves is 75% Native American and has in the past had limited access to programming centering on Native American culture and heritage. Octavia Fellin Public Library has provided much-needed access to Navajo-based programming, Hopi drummers, and Native American authors and history speakers. The library prides itself on its ability to serve all ages, backgrounds, and interests. There are many members of the local community who can say that the programs at the library have changed their lives – Maria Elena Reyes is one example. Click here for  Maria’s story.

April Mini Conference Cancellation

| March 4, 2014 | 0 Comments

March 3, 2014

To: The NMLA Membership

On behalf of the NMLA Board, it is with regret that I write to inform you that we have made the decision to cancel the April 3rd and 4th Mini-Conference at Laguna.  The organization and the board are in a state of transition and reorganization.  The uncertainty about the Bylaws and calendar changes produced unanticipated delays in distributing pre-conference information.  Given this situation, we decided that it was inappropriate to proceed.

We will soon have the results of the latest membership vote on revision of the Bylaws and on election of new officers.  If the membership votes to approve the Bylaws change there will be the annual conference in Ruidoso in October 2014.  If membership does not approve the Bylaws change, then we will plan for a Mini-Conference in October 2014 according to the current Bylaws calendar.

I would like to acknowledge the exceptional effort of the conference program and local arrangements committees who worked extremely hard on the April Mini-Conference.

Thank you for your understanding.

 

Mary Ellen Pellington, President
