Does your library improve your quality of life? Does your librarian make your library a better place? Has your librarian made a difference in your community? If so, it’s time to nominate your librarian for some well deserved recognition!
The Love My Librarian program, an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA), seeks to recognize 10 librarians with a $5,000 cash prize. Winners are also given a plaque and a travel stipend to attend the awards reception in New York City.
If you wish to nominate a librarian, he or she must have a master’s degree in library and information sciences or a master’s degree with a specialty in school library media. Nominations are open to any librarian working in the US in a public library, a library at a 2-year or 4-year college or university, or a K-12 school.
Nominations are open until September 19, 2016.
