Awards and Scholarships: Deadlines August 1, September 15
The library community is filled with people who work tirelessly to maintain access to information, provide quality reference services, help children learn to love reading, and do whatever is necessary to serve the needs of their institutions or communities. Do they get enough recognition? Probably not! But you can help by nominating one of these deserving individuals for recognition by WLA members. Or, nominate your own library for Library of the Year. Deadline is August 1: http://www.wla.lib.wi.us/awards/awardprocedures.htm

Likewise, you can encourage future librarians by telling them about one of the WLA Foundation’s scholarship opportunities. Or, if your institution needs to stretch its continuing education budget, apply for one yourself. Deadlines are August 1 and September 15. We have both library education and continuing ed scholarship opportunities: http://www.wla.lib.wi.us/scholarships/
