Small Community Librarian of the Year

Nominations are sought each spring to honor a small  community library director or librarian. Selection of the Small Community Librarian of the Year focuses on what the nominees do for their community and the betterment of humankind; and also on how they do so well with what they have (especially important during this financial age). Programming, grants, support of the community, innovative marketing — these are important factors in determining the year's honoree. The winner will be honored during the TLA conference in April. In the past, Daryl Tocker has awarded the librarian and her/his library with $1,000 each.
