What’s New · Cincinnati Public Library to Receive Prestigious National Award

IMLS medal

The Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is proud to announce it is one of 10 recipients of the prestigious 2013 National Medal for Museum and Library Service, awarded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. This award is the nation’s highest honor recognizing museums and libraries for their service to the community.

The National Medal specifically recognizes the Library for its innovative approaches to public service and efforts in the community. With 21,000 programs, workshops and classes like Summer Reading and Brain Camp, we are heavily invested in cultural and civic engagement, innovation, and lifelong learning.

The Library’s programming is just one reason why it is one of only 10 institutions receiving this honor out of 140,000 libraries and museums across the United States.

Without your support, the Library wouldn’t be able to offer the level of service and programming available to you and your community. It’s because of your commitment to the Library that gives us the privilege of saying we’re one of the busiest and best library systems in the nation.

This award belongs to all of us. Thank you.
