The Director of the Huachuca City Public Library has been awarded the Arizona Library Association's Emerging Leader Award for 2018.

Suzanne Harvey accepted the award at the Arizona Library Association conference in Mesa.

The award recognizes promising librarians with no more than five years of full-time library experience.

 Before her current position as Library Director in 2017, Harvey spent three years as the Children's Librarian at Huachuca City Public Library. 
 
Under her leadership, the library has introduced a variety of new programs for the public including weekly STEAM programs for children, a grant-funded coding club, a series of speakers for adults and a grant-funded Digital Literacy center.
 
"I am very proud of our library, and know that our wonderful staff, community partners, and town have come together to make the library what it is," said Harvey.
 
Harvey was also a substitute teacher at Huachuca City Elementary School and a 22-year career in the U.S Army that included tours in Italy and Korea.
