The Associationís 2011 Sara Jaffarian School Library program award for exemplary humanities programming recognizes, promotes, and supports excellence in humanities programming in elementary and middle school libraries that serve children K-8. By the Associationís definition, a humanities program can be focused in many subject areas, including but not limited to social studies, poetry, drama, art, music, language arts, foreign language and culture. Programs should focus on broadening perspectives and helping students understand the wider world and their place in it. The programs should be initiated and coordinated by the school librarian and exemplify the role of library programming in advancing the overall educational goals of the school. The Program is open to any elementary or middle school, public or private library, or any school library program in the United States that serves children in any combination of grades K-18 and is staffed by a state-certified librarian.
