I was pleased to hear that the Madison Public Library has been placed among the 30 finalists for the 2016 National Medal for Museum and Library Service! The National Medal, presented by the Institute of Museum and Library Service, recognizes institutions that have shown a commitment to innovative public service in their community.
For years the Madison Public Libraries have provided accessible facilities for learning, activities, children's programming, and internet access. I could not be more proud of the work they have done thus far and will continue to do to serve our Madison community and am confident that they are deserving of this recognition. Congratulations on this achievement and thank you for all you do!
