Do you know the OLA Librarian of the Year?    Well, you might if you nominate your colleague who has done a great job this year for your library or for Oregon Libraries.

It's time to nominate and it is very easy.   Simply send an e-mail with the reasons why you think this person should be librarian of the year.  Ask a couple more people to also send an e-mail telling their reasons and who knows, you may have a friend who is Librarian of the Year!

Below is a bit more info, but really people, it is pretty easy to do.

The qualifications for Librarian of the Year are that it may be any Oregon librarian who has been working in an Oregon Library for at least two years in a paid professional position.  The nominee must demonstrate excellence in library service in his or her community and to Oregon libraries.  The nominee must be a member of OLA.

Nominations may come from all types of libraries and from all kinds of librarians, staff and supporters.
