Award Announcement – Joseph F. Schubert Library Excellence Award

The New York State Regents Advisory Council on Libraries announced today that applications are being accepted for the Joseph F. Shubert Library Excellence Award and will be due on October 5, 2022.  Libraries have faced many challenges and shown remarkable resilience and creativity over the past year; this is a wonderful opportunity to honor that.

The Award will recognize a New York State library or library consortium that has taken significant steps to improve the quality of library service to its users.  As in past years, an award of $1,000, graciously donated by the Friends of the New York State Library, will be given to the winner along with a plaque.

Projects nominated for the Award should document measurable progress in identifying user needs, taking steps to meet those needs, and evaluating the results.  All types of libraries are eligible to apply (academic, public, school, and special).  Previous applicants are encouraged to apply, and previous winners of the Award may apply after 3 years.

Special attention will be given to applications highlighting efforts aligned with the NYS Library’s digital equity initiatives and the Regents Advisory Council on Libraries Vision 2022.  For more information about the Shubert Award and the application form, please visit the Joseph F. Shubert Library Excellence Award page on the NYS Library website or contact Tor Loney, Library Development Specialist I, via email at  

Applications must be sent electronically and must be received by October 5.

Comments are closed.
