Springer Nature is proud to honor the legacy of Cynthia Graham Hurd by awarding a $1,500 travel grant to a library employee that has not had an opportunity to attend the Charleston Library Conference. Cynthia Graham Hurd was a librarian for over 31 years in Charleston public and academic libraries.  She worked as the branch manager of the popular St. Andrews Regional Library, and as a part-time reference librarian at the College of Charleston. On June 17, 2015, her life ended when a lone gunman entered the historic Emanuel AME Church and killed nine people during a prayer meeting. Cynthia is remembered as a “tireless servant of the community who spent her life helping residents, making sure they had every opportunity for an education and personal growth.” This scholarship enables Cynthia’s dedication to helping others to continue.
