The Border Regional Library Association (BRLA) has named Oscar Baeza Librarian of the Year for 2020.
“It is a great honor to have received the 2020 Border Regional Library Association (BRLA) Librarian of the Year award,” Baeza said. “There is something special about receiving a local award, where the nomination and selection committee are your colleagues.”
Baeza is an El Paso Community College (EPCC) Professor and Head Librarian at the EPCC Valle Verde campus Library and will be presented with the award at the Virtual BRLA awards banquet on Saturday, February 27th.
As librarians and information specialists, BRLA members find the organization provides a forum for local issues, which impact the future of all types of libraries in the region.
BRLA also serves as a support group to promote libraries as important educational and cultural institutions, which have a direct impact on communities and democratic action
