On July 22, 2020 the Military Libraries and DC SLA Communities convened for a learning session from SLA stalwart Sharon Lenius, who was one of two recent recipients of SLA’s John Cotton Dana award. The award recognized her lifetime of achievement as well as her exceptional service to SLA and the library and information profession.
