The Winners Speak: 2009 I Love My Librarian Awards
The I Love My Librarian Award winners gathered in New York in December and offered their insights about librarianship.
For these librarians, a library is "not just a space or a resource, but truly an experience"... a place to "explore and learn and dream and imagine". A library should be a "safe haven", a setting "where [patrons] can share ideas with one another", as well as an "oasis".
It's a joy to hear these award-winning librarians discuss what motivates them, and what they aim to offer patrons. The full video can be found here.
Congratulations to the 2009 award winners: Sol A. Gomez, Laura Grunwerg, Lucy Hansen, Alice K. Juda, Karen A. Martines, Dwight McInvaill, Seamus O'Scanlain, Dana Thomas, Carolyn Wheeler, and Oceana Wilson.
