Libraries are great, and they can be incredibly beautiful, but without the dedicated people who work there, libraries just wouldn't be nearly as special — which brings me to the point of this blog post: The 2015 I Love My Librarian Award.
"The I Love My Librarian Award invites library users nationwide to recognize the accomplishments of exceptional public, school, college, community or university librarians. Each year 10 librarians are selected. Each librarian receives a $5,000 cash award, a plaque and a travel stipend to attend the awards ceremony and reception in New York City, hosted by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
Each nominee must be a librarian with a master’s degree from a program accredited by the American Library Association in library and information studies or a master’s degree with a specialty in school library media from an educational unit accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education. Nominees must be currently working in the United States in a public library, a library at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or at an accredited K-12 school," — ilovelibraries.org
In some way, shape or form, librarians touch the lives of the people they serve every day. Help recognize your librarian's hard work and effort! Online nominations run now through September 28.
