The Old Dominion University Libraries presented their Librarian of the Year and Support Staff Member of the Year awards on May 1.

Tonia Graves (pictured left), who has been with Perry Library since 1998 and serves as the electronic resources and serial services librarian, was named Librarian of the Year.

She was nominated for her technical knowledge, as well as her commitment to the profession through participation in the North American Serials Interest Group, where she has served on committees, published and presented at conferences.

Graves is active on library committees and teams. She is also involved with the campus community, having served as Community Care Day representative for the library and as an adviser in the LADDERS program for students.

Kathryn Boone (pictured right), a library employee since 1983, was named the Support Staff Member of the Year. She was nominated for her customer service, as well as her commitment to the library and to the students.

Boone, a library specialist II, has served as a leader for many of the library's activities, such as the book sale and the staff development committee, and is seen as the "go to" person for most services at Perry Library. She also has been active in the Virginia Library Association's Paraprofessional Forum.
