Ms Peggy Craddock began her career as a teacher librarian at Walgett in 1969. She has always been interested in, and a driving force behind, professional development for teacher librarians, in particular those located outside the metropolitan area or larger country centres.

In addition to working as a teacher librarian at Matthew Pearce Primary School, she worked in the School Library Association of New South Wales, acting at one time or another as President, Secretary, Editor of ‘Teacher & Librarian’, and National Councillor.

In 1991, the Department of School Education rewarded her with the highly esteemed 'Excellence in Teaching’ Award and in 1993 she received the John Hirst Award of the Australian School Library Association NSW.

Ms Craddock retired in 1993. She has been on the CPACS Council since 1996 and became the CPACS librarian in 2000.
