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 November 9, 2020.
Ten librarians will each receive $5,000 in recognition of their outstanding achievements. Awardees will be honored at the virtual I Love My Librarian Award ceremony on Jan. 23, 2021, which will take place during ALA’s Midwinter Meeting & Exhibits; winners will also receive free full conference registration as part of their award packages.
Last year’s award winners included a school librarian who helps rural students discover new worlds through virtual reality technology, an academic librarian who leads a first-of-its-kind book club for adults with intellectual disabilities and a public librarian who created an innovative resource center for refugees and immigrants.
