Congratulation to the JCPLA Library Champions of 2011
Congratulation to the Jefferson County Public Library Association (JCPLA) Library Champions of 2011 including the Cotchery Foundation and Jerricho Cotchery.
The Library Champion Award is presented annually by the Jefferson County Public Library Association. The award recognizes an individual or organization who has made a significant contribution(s) to libraries and/or librarianship in Jefferson County, Alabama.
The Cotchery Foundation and Jerricho Cotchery were nominated for the Library Champion award for their steadfast support of teen reading. Since partnering with the Cotchery Foundation, the Birmingham Public Library has experienced a significant increase in the number of teens participating in our summer reading program.
Thanks to Homewood Public Library for sharing the photographs of the Library Champion Award ceremony presented at the JCPLA Holiday Luncheon on December 7, 2011.
