Posted By Brandi Hunter-Davenport, Monday, July 8, 2019

Hello, Pennsylvania Librarians!

The PA Library Association Awards Committee seeks to award Certificates of Merit to individuals who are making outstanding contributions to Pennsylvania libraries within the past five years, especially recognizing exceptional achievement or performance beyond that demanded in doing one’s own work well, whether locally or statewide.

Certificates of Merit will be presented during the 2019 Pennsylvania Library Association Conference, October 13-16 at the Bayfront Convention Center in Erie. Here is a list of past winners:

The nomination process is easy... The nomination submission form for all award categories is available here on SurveyMonkey. You can view the requirements in advance here: Please note the nomination form asks for appropriate biographical and professional information about the nominee. Pennsylvania Library Association membership is required for both nominators and nominees of the Certificates of Merit.

Don’t delay! All nominations must be submitted by Monday, July 15 at 8 AM. Submission through the online survey is preferred, but nominations along with any supporting documents may be emailed to Carrie Sturgill at  If you have any questions, contact Carrie Sturgill, 2019 Awards Committee Chair, at 610-687-1124.

Thank you,

Your 2019 Awards Committee
