About

         Wegner Library READ Poster Award

The American Library Association developed the first "READ" poster over forty years ago, and numerous libraries have since used them to encourage reading and celebrate accomplishments in their communities. In 2022, the Wegner Health Sciences Library created the annual READ Poster Award to highlight the importance of information literacy and honor the library's many supporters.

The Wegner Library READ Poster Award recognizes at least one library supporter each year by featuring their image on a poster and displaying it in the library. Nominations are accepted at any time, but they should be submitted no later than the last Friday in February for that year's award. Winners are announced in early July. Anyone who is a regular user of Wegner Library's resources, or who supports the library in any way, is eligible for nomination.

 

          Statement of Eligibility     

We understand the terms of eligibility broadly. Any individual who has made or is making a significant contribution to the Wegner Health Sciences Library, or who regularly utilizes the Wegner Health Sciences Library resources, is eligible for nomination.
