Apologies for cross-posting, but….

Is your library awesome? (I like to think that most libraries in Oregon are totally awesome!).

If you think that your library has had an exemplary impact in your community, please consider nominating your library for the National Medal for Museum and Library Service. Nominations are due to the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) by October 1, 2018. Please see more info below.

Cheers,

Ross Fuqua
