2011 John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award winners to be announced January 8th

Are you up for the John Cotton Dana Award this year? Or, like me, do you just want to know whose work made the cut? Then you need this info:

A press conference announcing this year’s winners of the John Cotton Dana Library Public Relations Award will be held from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. PST on Saturday, Jan. 8 at the San Diego Convention Center, Room 30-D. (The San Diego Convention Center is located at 111 West Harbor Drive in San Diego; phone (619) 525-5000 for directions.)

As a precious JCD winner, I can tell you that it’s a big deal. Your library gets money, you get national recognition, there’s a luncheon or something at the ALA confernce, and… well, that’s really it. 🙂 As I told my friends, ALA tells us that there are more libraries than McDonald’s in the US, so being one of the handful of PR professionals honored among that many is a real “get.”

In advance, congratulations to this year’s winner!
