Our Trophy Case (and My Gratitude) Runneth Over

MLA award 2013Mind if I take a moment to give a huge shout-out to those who work at KDL?

KDL received the State Librarian’s Citation of Excellence during last week’s Michigan Library Association annual conference. We were one of two libraries to receive this award (the other was Lakeview High School in Battle Creek), which acknowledges excellence in library service and stands as a testament to the hard work of every staff member in the KDL family.

Needless to say, this accolade — as with our prior awards and recognitions — belongs to them. Their service is an inspiration not only to me, but to libraries across the state. Congratulations!
