Excellence in Library Service Awards

As part of its commitment to encourage innovation and recognize outstanding achievement in public and school library service in the Peace region, Peace Library System annually presents awards in three categories to public libraries and one award to school libraries. The Excellence in Library Service Awards will be presented at the Rural Libraries Conference on September 26, 2019. Please visit this link for a list of previous recipients.

Selection Process
A committee of Peace Library System staff reviews the nominations and selects the recipient(s). An award is not necessarily given in each category each year.
Each award consists of a framed certificate and a monetary award of $200 to be used at the local library board’s discretion.
Nomination Submissions
Member library staff, board members, school administrators, teachers, or members of the public may submit nominations. Only one project per library may be nominated each year, and libraries cannot win for a project previously awarded.

The nomination information provided by you is the only criteria by which the committee chooses the award recipients. Therefore, we encourage you to provide as much detail as possible about the nominated project in your submission. The above nomination form must accompany your nomination but you are welcome to submit supplementary material.
