Top award for librarian.
OLIVIA Barnden is celebrating after being chosen as Youth Librarian of the Year.
The Youth Libraries Group administers the award which recognises the innovation and dedication by a staff member working with children and young people in public libraries.
Olivia, who is based at Huddersfield Library but works across all Kirklees libraries, said: "It was a great honour to be nominated, let alone win this award. I could not do my work without the support of my colleagues.
"I hope to use any publicity from my award to highlight all the fantastic work taking place in Kirklees libraries and to collaborate with other libraries around the country."
Olivia decided to become a librarian to allow her more scope to develop community projects and to do outreach work, encouraging people who don't traditionally visit libraries to visit them and get involved. She wants to help make libraries more accessible to everyone.
