Nicholas Higgins
 - Supervising Librarian, New York Public Library, Correctional Services Program
Social networking now includes book club gatherings. Nicholas Higgins brings the book club concept to Riker's Island or other jails every day of the week. Inmates who never visited a public library now stand in line to request a library book. A special program for incarcerated dads to read and record a story book for their kids has been introduced by Higgins and his staff of volunteers. He discusses his program with Judith West on Getting Your Money's Worth.
