Congrats to Robert Lackie

Just a quick congrats to Library Garden blogger Robert Lackie on receiving the 2006 Ken Haycock Award for Promoting Librarianship. The award is given annually to honor an individual for contributing significantly to the public recognition and appreciation of librarianship through professional performance, teaching, and/or writing.


Robert Lackie is being recognized for his contributions in promoting the library profession in the academic, public, and school library sectors through his extensive teachings, writings, and professional service. Described by Vibiana Bowman, Rutgers University, as an “an indefatigable ambassador for librarianship,” Lackie is quite well-known among library and educational professionals in the mid-Atlantic region as a dynamic and enthusiastic teacher, educator, and speaker; he has taught a legendary number of courses ranging from basic library instruction sessions and professional development training programs to graduate library science courses at Rutgers University.

If you’re lucky enough to know Robert, or to have worked with him in any capacity, this award certainly comes as no surprise. His generosity, energy, caring, and commitment know no bounds. So congratulations Robert! For my money, this recognition couldn’t have gone to a more worthy librarian. I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to work with you, hopeful that we will work together again in the future, and proud to be your friend.

    Congratulations Robert! You are so very deserving of this honor.

    I have had so much fun working with you on various projects and workshops over the last 5 years. Your energy and enthusiasm shine through in everything you do.

    Does this mean you will be going to ALA? I hope so… and I hope you will be at the blogger’s bash on Saturday night so we can celebrate with you. If not, drop by for a BBQ soon….

    Wow!! I go away for a few days to celebrate my wife Renee’s graduation from Rider with her BA degree, and I read this blog–thank you very much, Pete, and you, too, Janie, for your very kind, inspiring comments! I am very honored to soon receive the 2006 ALA Ken Haycock Award, but I must say that I am even more touched by your words in response to the award announcement. It truly is a pleasure for me to know and work with you both. Thanks again! “Talk” with you again soon!

    We focus so much on libraries, as well we should, that I wanted to ensure that we recognize, and continue to recognize over time, those librarians who bring honor to our profession. Having read the nomination after the committee decision, there can be no better recipient. Congratulations!
