Sister Sally Daly Grant

The Catholic Library Association together with the Junior Library Guild established a grant in 2007 in memory of Sally Daly, SSJ, an ardent supporter of recruiting new members to CLA and its Children’s Library Services Section. The purpose of the $1,500 grant is to enable a new member of CLA’s Children’s Library Services Section to attend the annual convention. The nominees will be selected by the CLA Scholarship Committee, and will be notified in time to make convention arrangements.
