Congratulations to Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library (KS), 2016 Gale/LJ Library of the Year.
“The Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library (TSCPL), KS, is engaged in every discussion in its community. In fact, it is usually leading them. The library is central to local deliberations and changes; creates leaders; and uplifts the community it serves. The way the library has become a major force for its constituents in the city of Topeka and throughout Shawnee County sets a bar for all libraries and has earned TSCPL the 2016 Gale/LJ Library of the Year Award.”
You will also notice some “honorable mentions” at the end of the article, including the Madison (WI) Public Library, just a few blocks from my home.
