New York Times Librarian Awards

The New York Times has announced the winners of the 2006 New York Times Librarian Awards. Now in its sixth year, the program honors librarians from around the United States who have provided outstanding public service and have had a strong and positive impact on their nominators. This year's winners represent 17 states. Included among the 25 winners for the first time are three academic librarians. In an expansion of the program, librarians working in college and university libraries were eligible to be nominated by college students, faculty and administrators. Nominations for the public librarian awards came from the general public. The Times received more than 1,300 nominations from 45 states this year. The Times will hold a ceremony and reception in honor of the winners on December 13 at which each winner will be given $2,500 and a commemorative plaque from The Times
