Nominate Your Peers for ASCLA Service and Achievement Awards

ASCLA invites Friends of the Library in Minnesota to nominate outstanding peers for one of two national life-time achievement awards.

Of special interest is the ASCLA Exceptional Service Award, which is regularly given to Friends and other committed volunteers. In particular, this citation is intended to recognize exceptional service to the homebound, hospital patients, group home residents, and/or inmate populations. Other strong candidates will be considered. Click here to learn more.

Alternatively, consider ASCLA’s Leadership and Professional Achievement Award. As the name suggests, this capstone prize honors exemplary leadership and achievement in library work. Involvement with state library development and statewide services or programs are important considerations. Click here to learn more.


Nominees must be current members in the Association of Specialized and Cooperative Library Services (ASCLA). Nominations for both award are being accepted for a limited time only, so don’t delay!
