$5000 prize on offer for library excellence

Did you make an impact on library services in 2012 with an innovative service, event, program, piece of research or partnership?

Individuals, libraries and organisations are encouraged to nominate their project for the 2013 Library Board of Western Australia Award for Excellence.

The $5000 prize will recognise a project which made a significant contribution to the Western Australia library industry and library services in 2012.

The Award is not restricted to libraries and librarians – nominations are encouraged from all areas of the library industry and related sectors.

Previous winners of the Award are the City of Wanneroo for a project which provided resources to book clubs in remote areas, and the City of Fremantle for a temporary outdoor reading room which transformed Kings Square into an active social hub.

“The Award is linked to the Board’s leadership role in guiding and encouraging the provision of all library services throughout the State”, said Professor Margaret Nowak, Chairman of the Library Board of Western Australia.

Nominations close at 5.00pm on Tuesday 2 April 2013 and the Award will be presented during Library and Information Week in May.

Further information, including selection criteria and an entry form, is available from the State Library website: http://slwa.wa.gov.au/about_us/library_board/award_for_excellence.
