About the Trustee Citation Award
The ALA Trustee Citation recognizes public library trustees for distinguished service to library development, symbolizes and honors the best contributions and efforts of the estimated 60,000 American citizens who serve on library boards. Trustee service may have been performed on the local, state, regional or national level or at a combination of levels. Equal consideration is given to trustees of small, medium and large public libraries. Citations may not be awarded when there is no sufficiently outstanding achievement brought to the attention of the Awards Committee.
