Has a Librarian at AC Library made a difference in your life? Nominate them for the I Love My Librarian Award!
The I Love My Librarian Award encourages library users to recognize librarians in public, school, college, community college and university libraries for the difference they’ve made in their communities.
Up to 10 librarians will be selected to win $5,000 and be honored at a ceremony and reception in New York, hosted by Carnegie Corporation of New York. Additionally, each award-winner’s library will receive a commemorative plaque. Winners will be announced on Dec. 4, 2018.
To be eligible, each nominee must hold a master’s degree in library and information studies from a program accredited by the American Library Association 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 also currently work in a public library, a library at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or at an accredited K-12 school in the United States.
Nominations will be open until Oct. 1, 2018. For more information and to nominate a librarian, visit ilovelibraries.org/lovemylibrarian.
The award is supported by Carnegie Corporation of New York, the New York Public Library, and The New York Times.
It is administered by the American Library Association (ALA), the oldest and largest library association in the world.
