The Arnulfo D. Trejo Librarian of the Year Award is presented annually by REFORMA to recognize a librarian who has distinguished himself or herself in the field of librarianship, promoted and advocated services to the Spanish-speaking and Latino communities, and made outstanding contributions to REFORMA. The award is funded by the Trejo Foster Foundation for Hispanic Library Education.
The Trejo Foster Foundation was founded in 1992 by REFORMA founder Dr. Arnulfo D. Trejo to serve as a significant force in advocating quality library and information services for Hispanic/Latinos in the United States; to influence schools of library and information science to recruit, retain and graduate more Hispanic/Latino students and to incorporate more Hispanic/Latino perspectives into the curriculum; and to provide a forum for the development, discussion and promotion of Hispanic/Latino library and information issues.
