I Love My Librarian!
In The New York Times of Monday, August 27th, my eye cast upon the large script and full ad — the “I Love My Librarian 2012 Award“. Even more happily came the words on page C6 — “Librarians in our nation’s 122,000 libraries make a difference in the lives of millions of Americans every day.” I noted the pile of books, with a laptop on top, and mused on all the ways we work.
Joined by the NYT and ALA (American Library Association) Carnegie Corporation invites nominations to shine the spotlight on a librarian at one’s school, public, college, community college, or university library. Up to 10 winners will be selected to receive a $5,000 cash award and plaque, and they will be honored at a ceremony and reception at The New York Times in December.
