Toni Garvey: Phoenix Public Library Librarian of the Year 2004
Berry, John N., III
Library Journal, v129 n1 p44 Jan 2004
Toni Garvey, director of the Phoenix Public Library (PPL) and LJ 2004 Librarian of the Year, has practiced her profession in a Western county jail, for the politicized board of a Southern public library, in the children's room of a university community, and through the up and down economics of a major American city. She has managed branches and systems, children's work and reference services, huge building programs and major technology upgrades. Since moving to Arizona, she has focused all that expertise on salvaging an embattled urban library system. She has performed with charm and grace and come out of it loving her job, her profession, and her community, and thus is much deserving of the recognition she has received via this award.
