Nominations are open through November 9, 2020, for the I Love My Librarian Award. The I Love My Librarian Award encourages library users to recognize the accomplishments of exceptional public, school, college, community college, or university librarians. Each year, 10 librarians are selected to receive a $5,000 cash award and $750 for their library in recognition of their outstanding public service.
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.
