Carroon Apple Award

Sponsored by the Mississippi Library Association

The School Libraries Section selects and presents the Carroon Apple Award for the purpose of recognizing outstanding accomplishment in the field of school library media services. The award seeks to recognize the professional legacy begun by Barbara Carroon in this area of school librarianship. The first “APPLE” award was presented to Barbara Carroon, and thereafter has been known as the “Carroon Apple”. The award consists of a brass apple engraved with the words “MS. LIBRARY ASSN. – CARROON APPLE – OUTSTANDING SERVICE.”
