 Here's another one for a librarian who's new to the field:

For those who are new to the profession, try this one!  What a great way to encourage a new colleague and get them involved with WLA:

The Wisconsin Library Association and the New Members Roundtable are pleased to announce a new annual award opportunity!  The “Rising Star” award will be given to a person realtively new to his or her library career who has made an outstanding contribution to his or her library and/or community in the past year. Nominees should have been active in a Wisconsin library community for at least one year but do not have to be a WLA member.  The recipient of this award will receive a one year WLA membership and be recognized at the WLA Annual Conference Awards Ceremony.
If you know an individual that has contributed in a significant achievement or project to the Wisconsin library community and deserves to have statewide recognition for their positive actions please submit an application by September 15 to Katharine Clark at Any questions about the award can also be sent to Katharine.
