The Illinois Library Association's Awards Program

The Illinois Library Association’s awards program recognizes excellence in librarianship and library service in Illinois. The program increases awareness of the contributions of all association participants, including recipients, sponsors, co-sponsors, and committees/forums.

Recipients are selected by the ILA Awards Committee or by the various forum awards subcommittees.  Nominations are forwarded by the ILA office to the ILA Awards Committee chair, and to the appropriate forum representative, during May of each year.
