PHILADELPHIA — United for Libraries is accepting applications for the ALA Trustee Citation through Dec. 31, 2013.

The ALA Trustee Citation, established in 1941 to recognize 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. It is presented during the Opening General Session of the ALA Annual Conference. 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 libraries of all sizes.
