Congratulations to Carla D. Hayden!

Carla D. Hayden, winner of 2015 Mary Pickersgill Award for Women’s Leadership in Business and CEO of the Enoch Pratt Free Library since 1993, will become the first woman and the first African-American to oversee the nation’s largest library as head of the Library of Congress. Hayden was nominated by President Barack Obama in February and was confirmed by the Senate on a 7418 vote.

“She moved the Enoch Pratt into the digital age,” said Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski, a Maryland Democrat. “She’s a transformational leader.”
