The award is given to full-time library employees for work-related higher education tuition, workshop and seminar registration fees and conference expenses. Recipients are invited to an awards lunch and are honored at the Edmon Low Library Staff Association's Spring Meeting

  1. library science or work-related post-secondary course tuition;
