* Naomi House RECEIVES PRESTIGIOUS “MOVER & SHAKER” AWARD FROM LIBRARY JOURNAL MAGAZINE
In its March 15, 2013 issue, Library Journal named 50 outstanding professionals committed to providing excellent service to meet the needs of the people they serve. Naomi House was selected because of her commitment to librarianship and building a community, INALJ.
Naomi currently serves a Federal Government Library contractor as supervisory Reference and Acquisitions Librarian. Her profile will debut on Sunday, March 19th, online.
Library Journal honored Naomi because of her commitment to finding librarians and other info pros jobs.
“Each member of this year’s Movers & Shakers class embodies service to their community and a passion for advancing libraries and their profession,” said Mike Kelley, Library Journal Editor-in-Chief.
The 2013 Movers & Shakers were selected by the editors of Library Journal, the profession’s leading trade magazine. Each of the Movers & Shakers will be prominently featured in the March 15th issue of Library Journal and celebrated at a special luncheon in June during the American Library Association’s annual conference in Chicago. The print feature’s companion website is sponsored by OCLC and available at lj.libraryjournal.com/movers2013. The luncheon and awards ceremony is made possible by the support of sponsors, including Baker & Taylor, Collection HQ, DEMCO, Info Group/Reference USA, Library Aware from Novelist, ProQuest, and Rosen.

About Library Journal
In its 137th year of publication, Library Journal is the oldest and most respected publication covering the library field. Considered to be the “bible” of the library world, LJ is read by more than 100,000 library directors, administrators, and staff in public, academic, and special libraries. Library Journal is a publication of Media Source Inc., which also owns School Library Journal, The Horn Book Magazine and Junior Library Guild.
* In June 2020 Library Journal awarded their Library of the Year to the Seattle Public Library, which had hosted an anti-Trans group risking Trans staff and patrons. While I did not ask LJ to rescind my own award, I did sign a letter along with 2,000+ library workers asking LJ to rescind the Library of the Year award. They have declined our request, therefore I wanted to place an asterisk explaining why on my site.
