The 2005 New York Times Librarian Awards nomination forms are available and the purpose of the award is to honor"those librarians whose exemplary performance and outstanding community service have made their libraries friendlier and more accessible institutions."
The deadline for submission is September 2, 2005 and all nominees must be a "fully accredited librarian with a master's degree in library science who is currently working in a public library." So all of you hard-working, library directors need not apply; even though you probably meet the award criteria:
1) Quality of the service the nominee has provided to the public
2) Knowledge of the library and its resources demonstrated by the nominee
3) Commitment shown by the nominee to helping the public
