315: Community Achievement Award

The purpose of this award is to recognize individuals who have rendered outstanding library service in their communities.

This award is given to recognize achievement at the local level by professional librarians, i.e., those certified or with a degree.

This award may also be given as the Association’s recognition of an award from another source that has enhanced the library, and so the entire community. Such recognition might be given to a local, school or academic librarian who has received a community, regional or national honor.

Nominations for this award should document the achievement of the nominee.

This award is not necessarily given every year. More than one award can be made.

The Community Achievement honoree(s) receives membership free for the following year.

A suitable certificate or other memento of the occasion shall be presented during the annual conference.
