Long-time Tusculum College librarian visits Garland Library, children’s book collection named in her honor
Cleo Treadway, Johnson City, center, visited the Thomas J. Garland Library at Tusculum College on Aug. 15. Treadway, who remains very active in community volunteer work, spent two decades as head of the library program at Tusculum, retiring in 1990. She is shown here with two of the library staff members she worked with during her time at Tusculum College: Coordinator of Library Technical Services Carolyn Parker, left, and Reference/Intructional Services Librarian Charles Tunstall.
Partially visible behind them, though obscured by the light of the camera flash, is a plaque that marks the Garland Library’s children’s book collection as the Cleo Treadway Children’s Book Collection, honoring Treadway for her many years of service to the library program. After being greeted by Interim President Russell Nichols and Library Director Myron “Jack” Smith, Mrs. Treadway was taken out to lunch by the library staff.
