Library Friends Invited To Submit 2015 “I Love My Librarian” Award Nominations

Strong and productive Friends of the Library usually credit at least a portion of their success to a healthy working relationship with library staff. If this describes you, the American Library Association wants to acknowledge your overachieving library liaison – with its prestigious and aptly named “I Love My Librarian Award.”

Each year, ten librarians total are honored with this special distinction. It brings with it a $5,000 cash award, special plaque, and a travel stipend to attend the annual I Love My Librarian awards ceremony and reception in New York City.

Submitting an application online is easy. In addition to basic information about your nominee, be prepared to answer a few open-ended questions, including:

  • ilml2015-hires-final.jpgWhat sets this candidate apart? Why are they a strong contender for the I Love My Librarian Award?
  • How has this nominee helped you and made your experience of the library a positive one?
  • How has this librarian made a difference in the community? 

Eligible nominees must hold a master’s degree from an ALA-accredited university and be currently working in a public, academic, or school library setting.

Entries will be accepted through Monday, September 28.
