Nominate Someone for I Love My Librarian Award

Jun 9, 2017

The American Library Association (ALA) is now accepting nominations for the 2017 I Love My Librarian Award, which recognizes the public service contributions that librarians make in transforming lives and communities through education and lifelong learning. The national award invites the public to nominate their favorite librarians working in public, school, college, community college or university libraries. Nominations can be made now through September 18 at www.ilovelibraries.org/lovemylibrarian.

Contributions from last year’s winning librarians include providing a safe haven and emergency relief services during natural disasters, working with students with learning or behavioral challenges and youths in foster care and using skills as a former chef to teach the community about cooking healthy meals.

Each winner will receive a $5,000 cash award, a plaque and a travel stipend to attend the I Love My Librarian Award ceremony and reception in New York City on November 30, 2017, hosted by the philanthropic foundation and award sponsor, Carnegie Corporation of New York. The ALA will select up to 10 award recipients.
