Kenai Community Library wins NCLIS Award
Kenai Community Library is the state of Alaska winner for the U.S. National Commission on Libraries and Information Science (NCLIS) 2006 Health Awards competition, Librarian Julie Niederhause recently learned.
The NCLIS Health Information Task Force is busily evaluating all the state winners’ entries in order to narrow the winners to ten finalists, whose representatives will be invited to participate in the health information forum co-sponsored by the National Library of Medicine and NCLIS on May 4, 2006 at the Lister Hill Auditorium on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.
Nine of these finalists will be honored with a commemorative plaque and $1,000 and the Grand Prize winner will receive a plaque and $20,000 at the reception following the forum.
NCLIS will issue a formal press release regarding the state winners very shortly. In the meantime, congratulations, Julie!
