Past VSLA Award recipients:

Prior to 2018, there was one VSLA Award, the purpose of which was to recognize an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to school libraries and the library community in Vermont. At the 2017 annual meeting, the membership voted to expand the VSLA Award from one honor to three, to better recognize different types of contributions to the school library community of Vermont.
