Libraries are more than just the materials on their shelves, more than the myriad databases and other electronic services offered on their websites; libraries also consist of the dedicated individuals who staff the branches. While all library workers can and do provide excellent service to the public, librarians in particular have devoted considerable amounts of time and resources to earn a masters degree, so as to better provide excellent service to library users. The American Library Association (with support from Carnegie Corporation of New York and The New York Times) has established the I Love My Librarian Award, now in its third year, to recognize outstanding librarians in public and academic settings. Has a librarian touched your life? Visit this website to nominate worthy individuals and learn more about the award.
