The Carnegie Corporation of New York/New York Times I Love My Librarian Award encourages library users in the U.S. to recognize the accomplishments of exceptional public, school, and college librarians. Administered by the American Library Association, with support from Carnegie Corporation of New York and the New York Times Company, the program seeks nominations that describe how a librarian is improving the lives of people in a school, campus, or community.
Up to ten winners will be selected to receive a $5,000 cash award, a plaque, and a $500 travel stipend to attend the awards reception in New York.
Nominees must be a librarian with a master's degree from an ALA-accredited program 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 currently be working in the U.S. in a public library, a library at an accredited two- or four-year college or university, or at an accredited K-12 school.
Nominators of librarians in college, community college, or university libraries must be users of those libraries (e.g., students, faculty, or staff members). Nominators of school library media specialists must be library users (e.g., students, teachers, school administrators or staff members, or parents or caregivers of children at schools where the school library media specialist works).For more information, visit the awards program website @ http://ilovelibraries.org/article/nominations-open-2015-i-love-my-librarian-awards
