Nicholas Higgins and the Brooklyn Public Library Team is a 2017 Route Fifty Navigator Award finalist in Agency and Department Leadership. The Brooklyn Public Library created TeleStory, a library-based video visitation program designed for families separated by incarcerations. Cisco Connected Justice video units are used primarily for video chats with attorneys. TeleStory has been beneficial, preventing trauma that many young children can experience from the barbed wire and the corrections environment they would encounter in-person and is a model program for other facilities.
