The deadline for entries to The Bookseller's Library of the Year Award is this Friday 24th May.
The award - returning for a second year - highlights the work the best libraries of all sizes do to promote reading, literacy, information and the love of books, and is sponsored by Rakuten Overdrive and W F Howes, and run in partnership with The Reading Agency.
Judging this year will be Penguin General m.d. Joanna Prior; Fraser Hutchinson of The Reading Agency; Miles Stevens-Hoare, general manager of W F Howes; Rakuten Overdrive country manager Paul Davighi; and former librarian turned library campaigner Andrew Coburn, as well as members of The Bookseller team.
A shortlist of 10 outstanding libraries will be profiled in a special libraries focus in The Bookseller in July, with the overall award-winner also unveiled. The winner will receive a golden Nibbie, the coveted trophy of the British Book Awards.
Details on the submission process and the key criteria on which libraries will be judged are to be found here.
