The NYC Neighborhood Library Awards is seeking nominations from library patrons across the city. The Heckscher Foundation will award one NYC public library branch with $20,000 and the Heckscher Prize for Outstanding Service to Children and Youth. The prize recognizes the important role of branch libraries in the education and development of children and teens in New York City, and particularly those in our most underserved communities. Five additional winning library branches will receive $20,000 and a NYC Neighborhood Library Award each to use at their discretion. Please encourage your staff, friends, and supporters to nominate their local libraries online at www.nyclibraryawards.org/nominate/ or in person at any library branch. The nomination period will close on March 13th.
