The Illinois Library Association's Awards Program
The Illinois Library Association’s awards program recognizes excellence in librarianship and library service in Illinois. The program increases awareness of the contributions of all association participants, including recipients, sponsors, co-sponsors, and committees/forums.
Recipients are selected by the ILA Awards Committee or by the various forum awards subcommittees. Nominations are forwarded by the ILA office to the ILA Awards Committee chair, and to the appropriate forum representative, during May of each year.
Anyone can nominate a qualified nominee - Be Proud! Be Loud! and Shout Out a Nomination! See Awards Procedures for how to nominate for a 2014 Award.
