Staff Member wins Award

Please join us in congratulating Jenifer Phillips, HTFL Teen Coordinator in her award of Public Librarian of the Year. The honor is awarded yearly by Senator Daylin Leach to a public librarian for their outstanding service in the field of libraries in the 17th Senatorial District.

At the ceremony on Wednesday, May 23, Phillips’s work was highlighted in creating “Out at the Library,” which is an inclusive LGBTQ club focused on empowerment through art, writing and discussion. Phillips also helped create “Stay Woke,” which is a space for teenagers to discuss current events.
