Richard Bray, Senior Services Director recognized as a "Mover & Shaker"
Richard Bray, Senior Services Director for the Alameda County Library was recognized in the May 15th edition of Library Journal, as one of their 2007 Movers & Shakers. Only 50 Librarians nationwide receive the award each year for "making a difference" in people's lives. Mr. Bray and other recipients will be celebrated this summer at the American Library Association conference in Washington, DC.
Mr. Bray is being recognized for the many creative ways he helps meet the needs of older people, from ensuring they get library material even when they are homebound to feeding their social, intellectual, and even spiritual interests with innovative programming. The upcoming "My Neighbor's Faith" program on May 8th at the Fremont Library will be the fifth annual incarnation of this incredibly popular series on aging and spirituality. These, along with other relevant and unique programs, have been the hallmarks of Richard Bray's work.
