Librarians of the year recognized at Bryn Mawr

Maggie Caverly and Cyd Nathan were chosen 2007 librarians of the year in the 17th Senatorial District during an April 19 ceremony at Bryn Mawr College.

Caverly has been librarian at Roberts Elementary School in the Upper Merion Area School District since 1999. Nathan has been librarian at Penn Wynne Library in Wynnewood for 17 years. Both were cited for their extra efforts on behalf of readers.

State Sen. Connie Williams presented the awards. She created the program five years ago to recognize librarians who work in a public or school library in her district.

The 2006 winners were Ilene Goldis of Radnor High School, and Asha Verma of the Norristown Public Library.

Roberts Elementary will be site of Robb memorial

The friends of the late Ellen Robb are creating a gazebo and garden memorial to be located at Roberts Elementary School in Wayne. Robb's daughter attended school there.

Robb was killed in her kitchen three days before Christmas. Her husband, University of Pennsylvania economics professor Rafael Robb, is charged with the crime.

Funds for the memorial can be donated at any Wachovia Bank branch, or donors can send a check payable to Ellen Gregory Robb Memorial Fund, Box 60382, King of Prussia, Pa. 19406.
