The Illinois Library Association Public Policy Committee has named state Sen. Edward Maloney (D-18, Chicago) the 2012 recipient of the Robert R. McClarren Legislative Development Award. The award is given annually to a worthy recipient from the Illinois library community — a librarian, trustee, legislator, or library — who has contributed significantly to legislative development in Illinois. The award will be presented to Maloney Oct. 9 at the Illinois Library Association Annual Conference Awards Luncheon at the Peoria Civic Center.
