I Love My Librarian Nominations Open Through September 20

Just a reminder that nominations for the national Carnegie Corporation of New York/New York Times I Love My Librarian Award run through September 20.  Nominations are accepted at www.ilovelibraries.org/ilovemylibrarian.

The award invites library users nationwide to nominate librarians in public, school and college, community college and university libraries and tell how librarians make a difference in their campus community.

Thanks to the generous support of Carnegie Corporation of New York, 10 librarians will win $5,000 and be honored at an awards ceremony in New York in December, hosted by The New York Times.

Free tools to help let library users learn about the award are on the award website by clicking on the “Promotional Tools for Librarians” link.

In 2008 and 2009, ten librarians were honored with the award.  You can learn about them, as well as other winners, at www.ilovelibraries.org/ilovemylibrarian.  Click on the links that say “2009 winners” or “2008 winners.”

Winners of the 2010 award will be announced to the public in December.  If you have any questions, please e-mail Megan Humphrey at the American Library Association: mhumphrey@ala.org.
