The fifth annual presentation of the Paralibrarian Awards was as satisfying and exciting as the first. And, once again, out of a field of 17 nominees for 2 awards, even though only 6 candidates were able to attend the conference, both winners were there. Whew! (It's always worrisome that the winner might not come!)
Check out the webpage for the MLA Paralibrarian Section to see what's up with this section, and how to get involved and find out how to nominate or be nominated for one of these great awards next year! And see the nomination page to learn what criterion were used to select these candidates.
And the winners are....

Paralibrarian Advocate of the Year for 2008: Jim Sutton, Director of the Memorial Hall Library in Andover
