2009 Outstanding Service to Librarianship Award announced by the Canadian Library Association
"The Canadian Library Association/Association canadienne des bibliothèques has announced that the 2009 Outstanding Service to Librarianship Award is being presented to Barbara Clubb. The Outstanding Service to Librarianship Award is generously sponsored by Bowker. As noted by one nominator, 'For many people, Barbara Clubb's name is synonymous with outstanding service to libraries. There is no type of library or library service that is not of interest to her. Barb combines great intellect, energy and curiosity, all in support of providing the best possible service to library users. She is a library advocate at every opportunity, great or small.' The fact that the Award Committee received two independent nominations for Ms. Clubb for this award, both heaping praise on her long list of accomplishments, is further testament to her leadership and vision in a career spanning over forty years in Canadian libraries."
