The American Library Association (ALA) is reminding library users that they have less than two weeks left to nominate their favorite librarians for the 2018 I Love My Librarian Award. This year’s nominations will close Mon., Oct. 1 at midnight Central Daylight Time.
Library users across the country are encouraged to nominate librarians who have transformed lives and communities through education and lifelong learning at www.ilovelibraries.org/lovemylibrarian. The national award recognizes the public service accomplishments of exceptional librarians working in public, school, college, community college or university libraries in the U.S.
The ALA will select up to 10 award recipients. 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 Dec. 4 hosted by the award co-sponsor, the philanthropic foundation Carnegie Corporation of New York.
