The Letter Awards

To provide in some tangible way, appreciation of the work for the humanizing of knowledge which is being done in the world of letters by librarians or libraries. The idea of an annual Librarian Award is to honor a man or woman whose work especially exemplifies the way librarians use their professional skil to give to all, the tools of life. The Letter Library Award is given for distinguished contribution to the development of enlightened public opinion on an issue of current or continuing importance.
