Lemony Snicket offers a prize to librarians

I was trying to come up with my own intro to this but the ALA’s own description is pretty awesome:

It is of the opinion of Lemony Snicket, author, reader, and alleged malcontent, that librarians have suffered enough. Therefore he is establishing an annual
prize honoring a librarian who has faced adversity with integrity and dignity intact. The prize will be a generous amount of cash from Mr. Snicket’s
disreputable gains, along with an odd, symbolic object from his private stash, and a certificate, which may or may not be suitable for framing. It is Mr.
Snicket’s hope, and the ALA’s, that the Snicket Prize will remind readers everywhere of the joyous importance of librarians and the trouble that is all
too frequently unleashed upon them.

So, if you are a librarian who has suffered enough or know one that has – then head on over and nominate today!
