If there is a KDL librarian who has made a difference in your life or made an impact on your community, now is your chance to honor their contributions by nominating them for the national l Love My Librarian Award, sponsored by the American Library Association.
The I Love My Librarian Award invites library users across the country to recognize their favorite librarians working in public, school, college, community college or university libraries for transforming lives and improving communities. Nominations are being accepted online now through October 21, 2019.
Ten librarians will be selected to win $5,000, a plaque, and a travel stipend to attend the I Love My Librarian Award ceremony on Jan. 25, 2020 in Philadelphia.
Last year’s award winners included an academic librarian who stocks the library with non-perishable foods and toiletries for low-income students, a public librarian who created a book project to preserve refugees’ stories, and a school librarian who uses therapy and certified reading dogs to help students who are struggling with anxiety or have disabilities.
