Public librarian Beba Stankovic from Serbia was an Associate in 2014. After the program, Stankovic became very involved with the International Federation of Library Associations (IFLA). She attended an IFLA Congress, presented a poster session, “It’s Your Right to Know”, and organized three sessions for the IFLA Women, Information and Libraries Special Interest Group. At her home library, the Public Library ‘Ilija M. Petrovic’ Pozarevac, she helped to begin a new cycle of free courses on information literacy for retired patrons and just received money from the Serbian Ministry of Culture for a new Youth Department. Most recently, Stankovic was elected Vice President of the Serbian Library Association. She also received one of the most prestigious awards in Serbian librarianship, the “Djura Danicic” award, given by the Community of County Libraries together with National Library of Serbia.
