Librarians in our nation’s 120,000 libraries make a difference in the lives of millions of people every day. If a librarian has made a difference in your life, now is the chance to tell your story.
The Carnegie Corporation of New York/New York Times I Love My Librarian Award encourages library users to recognize the accomplishments of librarians in public, school, college, community college and university libraries for their efforts to improve the lives of people in their community.
Nominations will be open until September 12.
Up to 10 librarians in public, school and college, community college and university libraries will be selected to win $5,000 and will be honored at a ceremony and reception in New York, hosted by The New York Times. In addition, a plaque will be given to each award-winner’s library. Winners will be announced in December 2014.
Each nominee must be a librarian with a master’s degree from a program accredited by the ALA in library and information studies or a master’s degree with a specialty in school library media from an educational unit accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education. Nominees must be currently working in the United States in a public library, a library at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or at an accredited K-12 school.
The award is supported by Carnegie Corporation of New York and The New York Times.
It is administered by The American Library Association (ALA), the oldest and largest library association in the world, and The Campaign for America’s Libraries, ALA’s public awareness campaign about the value of libraries and librarians.

Lives change @ your library: celebrate National Library Week April 13-19
This week, the NSU
Libraries join libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in
celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries,
librarians and library workers.
Libraries today are
more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their
communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places
where their patrons live, work and study. Libraries are trusted places
where everyone in the community
can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the
community and address local issues.
We are celebrating
National Library Week with a few social media activities:
Tweet or Facebook us a
selfie of you and your poster about “How the Library has changed your life”Pick up a laminated word bubble at either
circulation desk, write your message and snap a picture.Post it to @NSULibrary on Twitter or
NSULibraries on Facebook.Use the hash
tag #LivesChange or #NLW14 to join the wider community of library supporters.
Watch for book give-aways
during the week on Twitter, be the first to respond.
Check-in on Foursquare
and get some library bling.
