Has a librarian made a difference in your life? Nominations for this year’s I Love My Librarian Award are open until November 9, 2020. Ten amazing librarians from public, school and college/university libraries will win $5,000 each in recognition of their outstanding service to their communities. If you know a librarian who’s gone above and beyond, especially during the pandemic, submitting a nomination is the perfect way to thank them.
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 Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation. 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 a library at an accredited K-12 school or have been working at one of these institutions as of March 1, 2020.
The philanthropic foundation, Carnegie Corporation of New York, generously sponsors the I Love My Librarian Award. The New York Public Library also supports the award program. The American Library Association (ALA) administers the award through the Communications and Marketing Office, which promotes the value of libraries and librarians.
