|Library Board Chair and Foundation Director Keiba Crear Invites You to Celebrate Your Library District, Winner of the National Medal for Museum and Library Service
I'm very proud to share the exciting news that the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District is a winner of the 2014 National Medal for Museum and Library Service!
Awarded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the National Medal is the highest honor awarded nationally for libraries and museums. It is awarded to outstanding institutions that make significant and exceptional contributions to their community.
The Library District was one of five libraries to receive this award. We were recognized for our efforts to align our programs and services with the needs of our community as it struggled with foreclosure, unemployment, bankruptcy and other impacts of the Great Recession.
I am honored to travel to Washington, D.C. with Library District Executive Director Jeanne Goodrich and community member Avree Walker for the award presentation ceremony in May.
