Library Larry’s Big Day, a television show produced by the Denton Public Library and Denton Television in association with the Denton Independent School District, has won the prestigious Margaret Irby Nichols Award from the North Texas Regional Library System (NTRLS). This special award is “given to an NTRLS library, which has created and promoted successful partnerships involving more than one type of library or community organization (non‐profit). This partnership…demonstrate[s] collaborative planning and resource sharing to provide improved library services to the people of Texas.”
The show’s creator, Kerol Harrod, also won a Branding Iron Award from the Texas Library Association (TLA) last month for a speech delivered to the Denton Rotary Club promoting Library Larry’s Big Day.
“We’re very proud of this important outreach program and the impact it has on the children in our community,” says Eva Poole, Director of Libraries for the City of Denton.
