The Public Library Section (PLS) of the New York Library Association is accepting applications for their Public Library Building Awards, Conference Scholarship Awards, and L. Marion Moshier/Asa Wynkoop Award. The PLS Public Libraries Building Award will be given to newly constructed library buildings. There are five Conference Scholarship Awards available to encourage public librarians (professional degree not required) now in the field, or students in library school, to participate in NYLA or PLS activities. The L. Marion Moshier/Asa Wynkoop Award for Distinguished Librarianship honors a librarian who has given outstanding service to a community of population of 7,500 or less. All Applications should be sent to by September 12th, 2021. Please indicate the award name or scholarship in the e-mail subject line. See the PLS Awards & Scholarships page for more info.
