CILIP Libraries Change Lives Award 2009 finalists

"Leeds librarians help and support local families whose children have Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) with advice and the use of picture communication software; an Edinburgh initiative encourages and promotes reading as a normal activity for vulnerable young people in residential care; and a national project that involves a range of local libraries to give book-shy adults the chance to enjoy reading for pleasure are all in the running for the 2009 CILIP Libraries Change Lives Award. The winner of the award will be announced by the 2008-2009 Poet Laureate and Chair of the Museums Libraries and Archives Council, Andrew Motion, on 15 July 2009 at CILIP's biennial Umbrella 2009 conference, held at The DeHavilland Campus, University of Herfordshire in Hatfield"
