Presentation of the 2015 Anne Galler Award to Lonnie Weatherby

2015 Anne Galler Award for Outstanding Library Service

Well Lonnie,

I am very honoured that the QLA has asked me, along with Phyllis to say a few words about you this evening.

2015 Anne Galler Award for Outstanding Library Service

 
Remarks by Phyllis Rudin

Lonnie thinks that doing your job well is its own reward. You don’t have to be feted and praised by your colleagues for doing what you should be doing in the first place. He told me so the other day. But I’m afraid tonight he’ll have to submit to the praise of the colleagues who love and respect him. He was outvoted in this case. But in deference to you Lonnie, I’ll be brief.

On behalf of the Awards Committee – Maria Morales, Lisa Milner and myself - it is an absolute pleasure to announce the recipient of this year’s Anne Galler Award ... Ms Christine Jacobs.

Our association created this award many years ago, as a means to recognize an individual who has enriched librarianship in Quebec and made a lasting contribution to the profession. Specifically, this award is presented to an individual who has demonstrated achievement in:

  1. Significant leadership role in the Quebec library community;
  2. Exemplary career performance, serving as a model for colleagues in the library profession; and
  3. Contributions to professional and/or scholarly activities, including ABQLA.

I will now call upon Linda Toivanen, a colleague of Christine’s at John Abbott College, to help present the award.

Thank you so very much for this honour. I had no warning or awareness that I was being considered for the award, and when I received the e-mail from the Committee, I did not open it immediately. When I opened it later in the evening, I had to read it several times, because it simply did not “compute”  – then I started to cry.

And I started to cry, I think primarily because I was so moved at being graced with an award with Anne Galler’s name attached to it.

This is a very great honour for me.  First, I would like to thank the members of the Anne Galler Awards Committee for choosing me as this year’s recipient.  This award has so many layers of meaning for me:

At the end of a very long, diverse and rewarding career, there can be no greater thrill than to be acknowledged by one’s peers. As I look around the room and see the many wonderful friends and colleagues I have worked with over the years – in QLA, as library colleagues, and in the workplace – I am grateful for your support, friendship and appreciation.
