Welcome to the VLA Awards Committee!

The Vermont Library Association gives five awards for outstanding service to and support of the state’s libraries:

  1. Sarah C. Hagar Award;
  2. Green Mountain Award;
  3. Trustee of the Year Award;
  4. Birdie Award;
  5. Library Advocate of the Year Award.

To place a name in nomination for any award, please send the nominee’s name, the name of his/her library, a letter or letters explaining why this person should receive the award, along with your name, library, telephone number, and e-mail address to the Awards Committee chair. Nominations including a few letters that present a well-rounded picture of the candidate are preferred to a single letter, or many letters that all say similar things. If a nomination is made by more than one person, please designate one signatory as the contact person.
