Nominations are open through September 19 for the 2016 I Love My Librarian Award.
The I Love My Librarian Award encourages library users to recognize the accomplishments of exceptional public, school, community college, or university librarians and to honor the ways they are improving people’s lives.
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 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.
