The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) They work everywhere from Frankfort, Kentucky, to Oakland, California, doing everything from helping out in a juvenile detention facility to giving advice on resume writing.

They are this year's winners of the I Love My Librarian Award, announced Tuesday by the American Library Association and sponsored by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and The New York Times. Each winner receives $5,000.

Among the 10 recipients is Michael Beller at Mills College in Oakland, the "go to" person on campus for research questions, and Cherry Hamrick, of Lansing, Michigan, who personally supervised a new, environmentally-friendly building for the Delta Township District Library.

The awards were established in 2008 and are based on submissions from library patrons.
