About the Award. The “I Love My Librarian Award” is unique. Previous winners have referred to it as the “People’s Choice Award” of the library world because library users nominate librarians for the difference they are making in their schools, campuses and communities.
Thousands of incredible nominations come in every year from teachers and principals, members of Friends groups, parents, students, administrators and members of the community.
