New award for innovative library health services

Here’s a chance for public and community libraries whose services improve community health to win an award for their efforts. For example, if your library has taken part in the "Informed and Healthy" campaign and developed a new service based on that, you can apply for the award by describing your service.

The award is given by the EIFL (Electronic Information for Libraries) Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP).

  • The invitation is open to public and community libraries in developing and transition countries.
  • The prize is US$1,500 and the opportunity to showcase your service at an international conference or gathering.
  • The deadline for applications is 31 July 2012.
  • You can apply in English, Russian, French or Spanish.
