LUC 2022 Award nominations are now open in the following categories:
This award recognizes a LOUIS member library that demonstrates excellence in at least one of the following areas: service to their community; creativity and innovation in developing specific community programs or a dramatic increase in library usage; leadership in creating programs that can be emulated by other libraries.
Outreach and social media programs require organization, planning, and an investment in time for the people dedicated to making the program happen. If successful, an outreach or social media program can lead to an increase in appreciation for, understanding of, and use of the library. The award for Best Outreach recognizes the time and hard work that a person or persons put(s) into planning and executing an event for their library.
The Timely Librarianship Award recognizes of a librarian or group of librarians over the past year who has completed a significant achievement, contribution, project, or goal related to a theme related to the circumstances of the year leading up to LUC. The theme for this year’s award is "Promoting Wellness at Your Library." We welcome nominations of librarians or groups of librarians who have had a unique contribution to wellness in some form at their library. We use the word ‘wellness’ here to be intentionally broad; please be creative in your interpretation.
