GLMA Exemplary Library Award

In order to identify and highlight these programs, GLMA and GLA are soliciting applications from schools. Library media programs in three schools (elementary,
middle and high) are selected for this recognition. Library media specialists throughout the state and GLMA and GLA select the recipients based on the school's written application, letters of support, a possible telephone interview and/ or an on-site visit.
