Your Best Program Could Win $5,000

Nominations are now open for ALA's Excellence in Library Programming Award. According to ALA: 
The award recognizes a library that has created and presented an exemplary cultural / thematic program or series in the past year (Sept. 1, 2012 - Aug. 31, 2013) that encouraged community participation, planning or sponsorship, addressed a community need and made a measurable impact. All types of libraries are eligible — school, public, academic and special — but the nominated program or series must have been for a public audience. To learn more about the award, and the 2013 award winning programming, visit
The award, $5,000, will be given at ALA's Annual Conference in June 2014 in Las Vegas. It's sponsored by the ALA Cultural Communities Fund.

You can see the instructions here, and then submit nominations here. The deadline is December 1. If you've done a program you're proud of, share your success and win some recognition for it! Then you can use the award to get some local press to build community pride.
