Librarian of the Year

As my last portrait assignment of 2014 I was commissioned by Library Journal to photograph, Siobhan Reardon, President and Director of the Free Library of Philadelphia, and the magazine’s 2015 Librarian of the Year.

It was great to work with Siobhan, she’s a natural in front of the camera, and to learn about the library and its programs.

The Free Library of Philadelphia has fifty-four branches and annual budget of over $42,000,000. Given the scope, it might be time throw a “President” or “Director” into the title, Librarian of the Year…
