Wilson honored by S.D. Library Association Warren Wilson, Vermillion, was awarded the 2003 Friend of the Library Award in ceremonies held at the South Dakota Library Association's Annual Conference in Sioux Falls on Oct. 16.
This award is presented annually by SDLA to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to library development in South Dakota.
Wilson was cited for his work with S.D. Board of Regents, the SDLN Executive Committee and a member of the State Library Board. It is said that he is always willing to go the extra mile for libraries, and is an excellent contract negotiator.
Ronelle Thompson, director of the Mikklesen Library at Augustana, said, "I have appreciated Warren's perspective on library issues, his sense of humor, and his willingness to engage in conversation about decisions that don't have Warren's presence among us and voice outside our circles."
