National Library Week coming

It's time to announce the Butler Community College Library award to one of our faculty members who demonstrates the best use of the library in teaching and learning. I’m calling it called the DEWEY award: “Developing Education with an Excellent Library – Yours” ... also known as “Dream Educator Wisely Enthralls You in the Library.”

You’ll be able to nominate your fellow faculty who demonstrate:

• innovative, consistent, effective use of the library in teaching
• program activities that bring students and/or the community into the library
• promotion, encouragement or support of the library and its resources and services
• contributions towards thoughtful, timely, and in-depth resource development

I’ll have everything posted on the website for you. The award will be made during National Library Week in April, and announced at the spring Institutional Development Day. The winner will receive:

• a $500 grant to select books for the library out of the library budget
• a $50 Barnes and Noble gift certificate to purchase books for self-inspiration presented in a lovely basket of goodies
• an appearance on library READ posters around the institution and bookmarks
• a permanent position in the library on the Award plaque listing all winners
• and a certain amount of publicity or notoriety

I can’t wait to see who wins!
