Congratulations to Rutgers 2008 MLIS alumna Elizabeth Fitzgerald, named one

Library and Information Science field is evolving, Fitzgerald holds the
innovative position of Culinary Literacy Specialist at the Free Library of
Philadelphia’s (FLP) Culinary Literacy Center.

Fitzgerald’s classes incorporate literacy basics with the dynamics of
cooking, such as reading through recipes, math by measuring, and science
and chemistry. So far, the program has hosted 6,000 people at more than 400
events that include growing initiatives such as Nourishing Literacy—a kids’
program linked to the Common Core—how to create delicious meals on a SNAP
(Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) budget, and Edible Alphabet, an
