About the I Love My Librarian Award
"Librarians<http://ilovelibraries.org/lovemylibrarian> touch the lives of the people they serve every day. The I Love My Librarian Award encourages library users like you to recognize the accomplishments of exceptional public, school, college, community college, or university librarians. Each year 10 librarians are selected. Each librarian receives a $5,000 cash award, a plaque and a travel stipend to attend the awards ceremony and reception in New York City, hosted by Carnegie Corporation of New York."

The promotional tools section<http://www.ilovelibraries.org/lovemylibrarian/promotional-tools> of the website has a downloadable logo and web badge, flyer, sample press release, sample Tweets for your Twitter feed (which could be used on other social media platforms), and more. Library staff could promote this in a September newsletter, on their library website, near the OPACs or circulation desks, via social media feeds, etc.
