Dear [Recipients Name],

My nomination for Librarian of the Year is Elizabeth Flatts. I have had the privilege and honor to work with Ms. Flatts for five years, and I can tell you, there is no one more dependable, loyal and hard-working that she.

She gives even the most menial tasks her full attention and care. Last year, she headed up both the annual fundraiser and the Metro Library Book Drive. She raised more money and drew in more donated books at those events than anyone has in the past two years combined.

Her demeanor is delightful. She is excellent with the library patrons. Once, our children's librarian was out sick, and Ms. Flatts volunteered to take over the children's story hour. She had children following her all over the library after that! They adored her!

In my humble opinion, Elizabeth Flatts is exactly the type of librarian you should award.
