Applications Invited for Sara Jaffarian School Library Program Award
The American Library Association Public Programs Office is accepting applications for the 2013 Sara Jaffarian School Library Program Award for Exemplary Humanities Programming.
Public and private school libraries in the United States that served children in in any combination ofgrades K-8 and conducted humanities programs during the 2011-12 school year are eligible. The library must be staffed by a state-certified librarian.
The library's humanities program or program series can be focused in many subject areas, including but not limited to social studies, poetry, drama, art, music, language arts, and foreign language and culture.
Programs should focus on broadening perspectives and helping students understand the wider world and their place in it. They should be initiated and coordinated by the school librarian and exemplify the role of the library program in advancing the overall educational goals of the school.
The award consists of a $4,000 honorarium and a plaque.
Information about the award will be presented on October 24, 2012, in a free online learning session. Registration is required.
Visit the ALA Web site for complete program information and to register for the online learning session.
