CLEVELAND LIBRARIAN WINS NATIONAL AWARD

     
NEW YORK, Dec. 2013: Caroline Xiaofang Han of the Cleveland Public Library was named as one of 10 librarians recognized for service to their communities, schools and campuses as winners of the Carnegie Corporation of New York/New York Times I Love My Librarian Award.

 

Through her efforts, Han has opened the doors for new US-Americans by reaching out into the community to provide instruction in English and U.S. citizenship, and other specially tailored programs to meet the communities’ needs.

One nominator wrote, “Through her program, the library is no longer behind the walls and inside buildings. She is the bridge between us, American society, culture and the world.”

 

Only 60 librarians nationwide have won the I Love My Librarian Award since its inception in 2008.

 

There are a total of 166,305 certified librarians in the United States and more than 200,000 dedicated library workers who offer services to the elderly, job-seekers, small business owners, families, students and others.

 

As part of the nominating process, more than 1,100 library patrons submitted detailed stories regarding how their librarian had an impact on their communities and lives. The nominations detailed how local librarians provided life-changing resources for multicultural communities and new Americans, created fun and educational safe havens for youth, and strived to preserve local history.

 

Patrons nominated librarians working in public, school, college, community college and university libraries.
