This award was established by the Friends of the Library to honor former City Librarian Ricki Brown, who headed the Abilene Public Library from 1998 to 2013 before her passing.
Recipients are nominated by the community and selected in recognition of outstanding leadership and accomplishment in library science representing public, academic, and school libraries in Abilene.
Award recipients are announced each November. Award recipients receive a $500 award and their name is added to a commemorative plaque at the Abilene Public Library.
