The Bozeman Public Library Foundation is now taking nominations for this year's Cornerstone Award, presented annually to someone who has supported and helped build our rich, cultural community here in the Gallatin Valley. Nominations will be received through March 6.

This award is presented each year, to an individual who has made a significant contribution to literature, libraries, and learning in the Gallatin Valley, at the Cornerstone Celebration during National Library Week. This year's Cornerstone Celebration: Honoring Arts and Ideas will be held on April 18.

Nominations are welcome and encouraged from the general public. "The Cornerstone Award is open to any Gallatin Valley resident, past or present, whose personal and/or professional experience is deemed relevant to or inherently connected with the Bozeman Public Library."

Nominations will be received through March 6. For complete guidelines and an application form, visit or contact Development & Programs Manager, Sarah DeOpsomer at 406-582-2425.
