The ILA Awards Committee has extended the deadline for award nominations to Friday, June 2. We encourage nominations for all awards, but especially the Librarian of the Year Award.
For more information about the Librarian of the Year Award itself:
This award recognizes a librarian’s distinguished service and leadership in Illinois libraries. Generally, the librarian so honored will have made an impact locally, statewide, and nationally. However, if an individual’s service is unusually outstanding on one level, then the nomination can rest on that area alone. Librarians so honored will have demonstrated a commitment to libraries, and especially Illinois libraries, which can serve as a model for others in the profession.
Nominate a deserving co-worker or colleague! Can’t think of anyone to nominate? Nominate yourself!
If you submitted a nomination in 2021 or 2022, please contact Tamara Jenkins at email@example.com to find out how to resubmit for this year.
