  • Free Library of PennsylvaniaSiobhan A. Reardon of the Free Library of Philadelphia (FLP): Library Journal's 2015 Librarian of the Year It's all about the community. After the same kinds of terrible cuts libraries across the country faced, Reardon regrouped and the results have been fantastic. First the library accepted that they had to change. Then they identified their five target populations and began working in neighborhoods and collaborating with community leaders. Thank you Siobhan for your leadership and hard work!
