The Texas Municipal Library Directors Association announced in its Spring Newsletter that the Denton Public Library was a recipient of the “Achievement of Excellence in Libraries” award for 2008.
Given annually, this award is given to libraries that demonstrate their service excellence through the attainment of certain criteria. After gathering copious representations of the library’s programs, services, and statistics, Emily Fowler Central Library manager Terri Sharp compiled an extensive portfolio to represent the library’s achievements in 2008. Included were examples of marketing materials, collaborative efforts, literacy support, services to underserved populations, and technological enhancements made by the library.
“I am so proud of my staff,” said Eva Poole, Director of Libraries, “and thankful that Terri did such a wonderful job on this huge task! They really do work hard to make all of these programs come to light.”
Official recognition from the Texas Municipal Library Directors Association will come later this year at the Texas Library Association annual conference in April in Houston.
