The 2017 Deanna Nipp-Kientz Memorial Service Award was presented to Elizabeth Kozlowski, Director of the White House Public Library in recognition and thanks for her exemplary volunteer spirit. President Leah Allison said Elizabeth “is a servant-leader in the truest sense of the word. She works hard at promoting Tenn-Share and it is during her time as Marketing chair that Tenn-Share has seen the creation of promotional materials such as its newsletter, Facebook posts, and a first ever video outlining what the organization can do for its member institutions.”

Each year, librarians from all over the state volunteer their time and talents to spread the word about the Tennessee Electronic Library (TEL).
