The philanthropic foundation Carnegie Corporation of New York generously sponsors the I Love My Librarian Award. The New York Public Library also supports the award program. The ALA administers the award through the Communications and Marketing Office, which promotes the value of libraries and librarians. Since the award was established in 2008, 130 librarians have received this distinguished honor. In that time, library users nationwide have shared more than 21,000 nominations detailing how librarians have gone above and beyond in their commitment to inclusivity, literacy, and digital access.
