Congratulations to this year's winners of the I Love My Librarian Award!
Thank you to all the library supporters who sent in nominations. More than 1900 library patrons submitted detailed stories regarding how their librarian had an impact on their communities and lives. Recipients were selected for their dedicated public service and the valuable role they play in our nation’s communities in transforming lives through education.
For the first time ever, the I Love My Librarian Award Ceremony and Reception will be held at the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting. Join ALA President Wanda Brown, ALA Immediate Past President and I Love My Librarian Award Committee Chair Loida Garcia-Febo, and committee members to honor this year's ten winners on Saturday, January 25, 3 - 4:30 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. You'll hear from each of the winners and learn their inspiring stories about the power of libraries and librarians.
The celebration will continue at a reception immediately following the ceremony. This event is free and open to all registered attendees. A livestream of the ceremony will be available for those not able to attend Midwinter Meeting. Look for details about the livestream on ALA's Facebook or Twitter accounts or sign up to receive notifications about all future I Love My Librarian events.
