Once again, school library media specialists can be nominated for The New York Times/Carnegie Corporation of New York’s “I Love My Librarian” Award. The award encourages library users to recognize the accomplishments of exceptional public and academic librarians and school library media specialists. Up to ten winners will be honored and receive a $5,000 cash reward, a plaque for the award winner’s library, and a $500 travel stipend to attend the awards reception, hosted by the New York Times, in December.
Last year three school library media specialists, including AASL member, Margaret “Gigi” Lincoln, were honored. Find out more information on last year’s winners at http://www.ilovelibraries.org/ilovemylibrarian. Nominations for school library media specialists will be accepted until October 9, 2009.
