The Larry Moore Challenge

The Ontario Library Association established an endowed Award to honour Larry Moore on the occasion of his twentieth anniversary as Executive Director of the Ontario Library Association.

The purpose of the Larry Moore Fund is to operate the Larry Moore Challenge, an annual competition to encourage and foster leadership in innovation in librarianship and libraries in Canada.

The Ontario Library Association has led innovation in Canada by supporting and investing in some of the country’s most ambitious projects, from the ground-breaking Ontario Digital Library to the digitization and archival activities of the original and extraordinary repository to the exciting interactive social space applications of the BiblioCommons.

The Larry Moore Fund wishes to encourage this kind of seminal thinking and to provide a catalyst for the generation of ideas that will keep library and information centres relevant and useful to everyone who would use them, virtually or in person.
