And yours too. And theirs. Browr…. If you’re an American and you’re looking for something to distract you from the fact that you handed the wheel of your suped-up monster truck over to a half-witted, shit-flinging chimp while driving down one of your gold-paved streets at 150, then you might take some time today to nominate your favourite (sorry, favorite) librarian for an award.
Library users have until Monday, Oct. 21 to nominate superstar librarians for the American Library Association’s (ALA) prestigious I Love My Librarian Award. Members of the public can submit nominations online for library professionals who have transformed communities and improved lives. The award recognizes the outstanding public service contributions of librarians working in public, school, college, community college or university libraries in the U.S. Each year since the award was established in 2008, the ALA has selected up to 10 librarians from a pool of hundreds of nominations. This year’s award winners will each receive a $5,000 cash prize, a plaque and a travel stipend to attend the I Love My Librarian Award ceremony in Philadelphia on Jan. 25, 2020, during ALA’s Midwinter Meeting & Exhibits.
