Deadline Extended for Library Champion Award nominations!

Do you know someone who's always there when the doors open at your branch library, volunteering to help with any and all projects? Someone who helps shelve books, helps raise funds, helps plant new landscaping, or helps get craft projects ready for children's storytime?

The San Antonio Public Library Board of Trustees wants to recognize those special people whose hard work and support make it possible for us to offer great service to all our customers.

The Library Board is seeking nominations for the 2010 Library Champion Awards. These awards recognize individuals (not employed by the Library) and community organizations for their substantial involvement with the Library system, or who have contributed time, talent or resources that resulted in the enhancement of library service in San Antonio. The deadline for nominations is February 24. Recipients will be recognized at a ceremony on April 11.

Nomination forms are available by calling (210) 207-2638 or e-mailing elizabeth.graham@sanantonio.gov. Completed forms may be mailed to the San Antonio Public Library Public Relations Office, 600 Soledad Plaza, San Antonio, Texas 78205; faxed to (210) 207-2603; or emailed to elizabeth.graham@sanantonio.gov.

The San Antonio Public Library Board of Trustees created the Library Champion Awards in 1996 to honor notable contributions to the Library system.
