Nominations are open through September 12, 2012, for the Carnegie Corporation of New York/New York Times I Love My Librarian Award. Ten librarians in college, community college, university, school, and public libraries will receive $5,000 and be honored at an award ceremony in New York in December.
The award encourages library users — professors, administrators, students — to submit nominations about how their librarian makes a difference on campus or in the community.
Previous nominators have said of their academic librarians:
- “One of the most valuable resources on campus.”
- “Fearless, creative, eclectic, understated, intelligent, enthusiastic, fresh and committed to the success of the students.”
- “Worth the price of our tuition dollars all by herself.”
Dr. Rhonda Allison Rios Kravitz of Sacramento City College, winner of the 2011 I Love My Librarian Award, shares what receiving the award meant to her in this video interview.
Nomination forms and more information are available on the @ Your Library website.
