“We chose to shine a light on librarians because more than anyone, they understand the interests of their patrons,” Libby’s CMO Jen Leitman previously said in a statement. “Librarians interact with library-goers day in and day out, and whether it’s providing advice on a genre or recommending a new title based on past interests, they’re seeing firsthand how their communities are interacting and reacting to these titles. Librarians are objective and completely trustworthy.”

Libby is the leading digital content platform for libraries and schools, per a statement shared with PEOPLE. The app connects readers with their local library’s digital collections of ebooks, audiobooks, magazines and more. Prospective patrons can sign up for the app with a valid library card.

“I’m so honored to be recognized by the Libby Awards—libraries are and always have been central to my life as a reader, from summer reading programs to school projects to simply browsing stacks and apps for my next favorite read,” says author Kate Clayborn, whose novel Georgie, All Along won Best Romance. “I am in awe of librarians and the good they do in their communities and in the country at large, and I treasure their support of my work as an author.”

“As a Libby power user (seriously, I spend so much time scrolling for new audiobooks to listen to during my runs) I am so honored to win a Libby Book Award,” adds author R. F. Kuang, whose novel Yellowface won the award for best Book Club Pick. “I’m sending all my love to the participating library staff – I am so grateful for your support of Yellowface!”
