Nominate a School Librarian

I Love My Librarian Award 2014

Update: Nominations for the 2014 Carnegie Corporation of New York/New York Times I Love My Librarian Award are now closed.  Winners announced December 2!

If you want to resubmit a nomination from a previous year, we've made it easy.

In order to nominate a librarian, please answer the questions on the form below. We’re sorry, but we cannot accept essays or entries that are sent via email or mail.

Before you get started, we want to ensure that all nominations have the best possible chance of being considered, so we offer the following helpful tips to nominators:

You'll need to submit the entire application in one session.  To make the process easier for applicants, we've provided a list of the questions (Word doc) so you can prepare your answers in advance.

Please keep in mind that after submitting your nomination, you will be not able to return to edit it.  If you feel your nomination has an error, please re-submit it.

If you have a group of people who want to send in a nomination for the same librarian, please consider pooling your thoughts into a single nomination, if possible.  We have found that having so many points of view in a single nomination gives us a stronger sense of who the nominee is and how they have made a difference in the community.  However, nominators may send in individual nominations.

If you have any questions, email Megan McFarlane, Campaign Coordinator, American Library Association,
