The Wisconsin Library Association (WLA) has announced Angie Bodzislaw, Director of the Spooner Memorial Library, has been named the 2022 WLA/Demco® Librarian of the Year. The annual award, presented by WLA and sponsored by Demco, is given in recognition of a librarian's outstanding leadership and accomplishment in library service.
Bodzislaw is recognized for her creative thinking and ability to forge partnerships with other community organizations to address local issues. Among her many accomplishments, Bodzislaw's nomination described her work to combat food insecurity through the development of the Compassion Kitchen and the Books and Bread program. Compassion Kitchen is a service in which the library offers care packages for residents in need of food and other basic living supplies in their lobby during library hours. The Books and Bread program brings books and food to homebound residents.
Bodzislaw will received her award at a ceremony during the Wisconsin Library Association’s annual conference at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva in early November.
