The Filby Award for Genealogical Librarianship is presented each year to a librarian whose primary focus is genealogy and local history. PPLD’s own Tim Blevins was chosen as the 2011 award recipient for the contributions he’s made to the District since arriving in 2001, including his work with the Pikes Peak Genealogical Society and the popular annual Regional History Symposium. The award is a huge honor for the District and a public recognition of the important work PPLD’s Special Collections Manager has done over his 10-year career with PPLD.
Blevins was also recently featured in The Gazette:
