The Ides of March are coming
and that is the deadline for nominations for the OLA Awards!

THE TIME IS NOW to honor your library colleagues!

OLA Honors & Awards Nominations

You have until March 15th to get your nomination in to the HAS committee.   Write us an e-mail why your colleague should be presented with an award.  It doesn't take too much time and we'll contact you if we need more information.  Simply tell us who they are, where they work and why they are so wonderful.  Finish off with your name and contact information.   That's all it takes.

Yes, you can get others to add to the nomination (no more than six), but one e-mail with the short story of someone who's "done good" is really all it takes.

Here's some more info

Nominations are open for the following awards:

                Oregon Librarian of the Year

                Library Employee of the Year

                OLA Distinguished Service Award

                Library Supporter of the Year

These awards will be presented to recipients at the 2013 OLA/WLA Joint  Conference Luncheon Banquet in Vancouver on Thursday, April 25, 2013.
