Congratulations to Liz Phipps Soeiro '07LS and D. Joshua Taylor '10LS for being selected for Library Journal's list of 2017 Movers & Shakers! Phipps Soeiro, a librarian at the Cambridgeport School Library, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was selected for her innovative programs, which "builds strong and trusting relationships among students, families, and community leaders." Phipps Soeiro is also the founder of Cambridge Book Bike. Taylor, President and CEO of the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, said his childhood interest in genealogy led him to pursue a career in the LIS field. Taylor brought genealogy to PBS's Genealogy Roadshow and continues to educate amateur genealogists.
