BOOTH LIBRARY IS A FINALIST FOR NATIONAL MEDAL
The Institute of Museum and Library Services has announced that Booth Library is a finalist for the National Medal for Museum and Library Service. The National Medal is the nation’s highest honor conferred on museums and libraries for service to the community.
Medal finalists are selected from nationwide nominations of libraries and museums that demonstrate innovative approaches to public service, exceeding the expected levels of community outreach. Booth Library is one of 30 national finalists for the award, and one of only 15 libraries chosen from throughout the United States.
To celebrate this achievement, IMLS is encouraging community members who have visited Booth Library to “share their story” on the IMLS Facebook page. Each of the 30 finalists will be highlighted on a specific date on the IMLS Facebook page, and Booth Library will be honored on March 18. Beginning that day, community members are encouraged to visit the site to post comments, photos or videos demonstrating how Booth Library has made an impact on them.
For more information about the library's recognition or to participate in "Share Your Story," visit Booth Library's website, or find the library on Facebook or Twitter.
The National Medal for Museum and Library Service winners will be announced in April, and the medals will be awarded during a ceremony in Washington, D.C.
