This grant, named after our much admired past-president, the late Pat Carterette, is designed to honor her passion for professional development in the field of library and information sciences.  A former staff development coordinator at the Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library and the first Continuing Education Coordinator for the State Library of Georgia, Pat always focused on providing outstanding educational opportunities for her colleagues to grow and develop within their career field. She believed in quality library service, leadership development, and continual learning. In honor of Pat’s spirit of learning we offer this award to the Learning Round Table membership.
