ALA Award Deadline is Dec. 1

Every year, the American Library Association and its member units honor people and institutions through an awards program that recognizes distinguished service to librarians, librarianship, and communities.

The ALA Excellence in Library Programming Award recognizes a library that demonstrates excellence in library programming by creating a cultural/thematic program type or program series, presented during the preceding year (September 1 – August 31), that engages the community in planning, sponsorship and/or active participation, addresses an identified community need, and has a measurable impact. The award is presented during the ALA President’s Program. The ALA Cultural Communities Fund sponsors the award and the $5,000 prize.

The deadline for applying is December 1. The application can be found on the award’s homepage.
