Congratulations to Babylon Junior-Senior High School’s librarian Jane Herbst, who was nominated for the I Love My Librarian Award in a national contest sponsored by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. Exceptional public school, college, community college and university librarians were recognized. Nominated by their fellow teachers, ten librarians received a $5,000 award, a plaque and a $500 stipend to attend an awards ceremony in New York City on December 8.

Herbst has been the BHS librarian for 20 years. Prior to her position in Babylon, she worked in the South Huntington School District. “It feels nice to be appreciated,” Herbst said. “I like working with kids and helping them find what they need. It makes me feel like a detective. I am always telling the kids, ‘Give me a clue so I can help you find the book you need.’ I really enjoy my job.”

Congratulations to Jane on receiving this honor! It’s always good to be loved.
