Do you have a favorite librarian you would like to honor?

To recognize school and community librarians’ contributions to neighborhoods and to our lives, I welcome you to choose one or more of the fantastic librarians in your life and nominate them for an award (there are money and recognition attached).  You have just over a month to pen your most descriptive and thoughtful words!

Whether or not a librarian is selected as 1 of the 10 finalists, you can elect for your library hero/ine to receive a copy of their nomination.  Don’t be shy!  Words of support and thanks are a treat that most folks don’t get to hear every day, and you can send them with your name included or anonymously.  Everybody wins!

I Love My Librarian

 

Collaborating?

Award guidelines recommend that writers pool their ideas and words into a joint nomination (they note that this creates a more powerful entry).  If you would like to co-write a nomination for a WePAC librarian, please email Mica, and we can enter an award submission together.  Thanks!

Rules of the contest:

In order to be eligible, each nominee must be a librarian with a master’s degree from a program accredited by the ALA in library and information studies or a master’s degree with a specialty in school library media from an educational unit accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.

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 at an accredited K-12 school.
