Big news! We just announced that we are one of ten winning finalists for the Institute of Museum and Library Service National Medal! The National Medal specifically recognizes the Library for its innovative approaches to public service and efforts in the community. With 21,000 programs, workshops and classes such as Summer Reading and Brain Camp, we strive to get our community learning for a lifetime!

Without your support, the Library wouldn’t be able to offer the level of service and programming we do, and it’s because of your commitment to the Library that we can say we’re one of the busiest and best library systems in the nation.

This award belongs to all of us. Thank you!
