NEW YORK, N.Y. - Some were praised as inspirations for young people, others for their work on digital projects and still others as tireless researchers.
Ten librarians have been named winners of the I Love My Librarian award, the American Library Association announced Tuesday. Each honoree will receive $5,000. The awards were based on nominations from more than 1,100 library patrons nationwide and were sponsored by The New York Times and the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
Winners include Jennifer J. Jamison of Atlantic High School in New Jersey, cited for using e-book devices to encourage kids to read. Molly Ledermann of Montana's Missoula Public Library was chosen for making the library more accessible for Spanish speakers. Harold M. Forbes of West Virginia University has had a "profound impact" on the state's archives.
