Rosemary Kavanagh Awarded the Dayton Forman Award from CNIB

​TORONTO —CNIB awarded the Dr. Dayton M. Forman Memorial Award for 2016 to the late Rosemary Kavanagh for her dedication and tireless efforts over the years to ensure that people who are blind or partially sighted had access to equitable library service.

The award, established by the CNIB Library Board in 1996, recognizes outstanding leadership in the advancement of library and information services for Canadians living with vision loss or print disabilities.

Rosemary constantly imagined new ways to offer services for CNIB library users and, more generally, people with print disabilities. She was a strategic thinker who was passionate about the role of non-profits in societal development and change, particularly as it related to people with vision loss.
