Wisconsin Library Association Award 2007-
Muriel Fuller Award
For improving community access to library resources, developing collaborations with local organizations to promote library services, and other contributions to library services that benefit users, the WLA selected Bea Lebal for the 2007 Muriel Fuller Award.
Muriel Fuller was a mentor and an inspiration for Wisconsin librarians. This
award, named in her honor, is conferred upon a library professional or
paraprofessional in recognition of outstanding accomplishments which have
significantly improved and benefited library services. These achievements may
include improving community access to library resources; extension or promotion
of library services through cooperative ventures with local agencies or groups
such as schools, businesses, or clubs; development of library facilities or
collections; or contributions to any area of library services which ultimately
benefit the library users. An employee in any type or size of library
organization, is eligible for consideration. The nominee must be a current
member of the WLA and employed in a Wisconsin library. The award may be given
for a single achievement or for a record of achievements over a period of years.
The award is intended for practitioners who have focused on improving library
services in the library organization in which they are employed, unlike the
Librarian of the Year Award which also recognizes contributions at regional,
state and national levels.
