STILLWATER -Every fall, the OSU Library recognizes an individual who has significantly gone above and beyond with the Edna Mae Phelps Award.

The award was established in honor of Mrs. Phelps of Seminole, a strong supporter of the OSU Library. While serving on the OSU Board of Regents, she worked to improve the Library's budget and played an active role in organizing the Friends of the OSU Library, serving as its first president.

The award is given every fall at the H. Louise & H.E. "Ed" Cobb Speaker Series presented by the Friends of the OSU Library. This year’s event is Nov. 6 and features Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Nominations for the 2009 award will be accepted through 5 p.m. Oct. 1. Nominees may include OSU Library volunteers, librarians, staff members, alumni, students, faculty, government office holders, fundraisers, interested citizens and members of the Friends of the OSU Library.

Nominations should include the nominator’s name, address and phone number; the nominee’s name, address and phone number; and a narrative supporting the nomination.
