For the second successive year, the City of Keller Public Library was honored with the Achievement in Excellence in Libraries award from the Texas Municipal Library Directors Association. The award recognizes the City of Keller Library for their commitment to service in our community and educational programming.

Only 26 libraries out of 565 in the state of Texas received this honor. Keller was selected for the award because of its efforts to meet the following criteria: Summer Reading program; services to underserved populations; cultural, topical and educational programming for adults and families; literacy support for all ages and professional staff training.

The Keller Public Library has assisted many families in the Keller community through its live educational programming. More than 250 events are scheduled each year for the community to help support early childhood literacy.

“Our staff feels very strongly that it is important for the families of Keller to get the best programs and services at our library,” said Jana Prock, director of the Keller Public Library.

In a year, the Library has had more than 8,000 children attend their storytime program, ranging from ages birth to six years. More than 5,000 children have attended other special programs such as Crafty Kidz, summer reading, performers and more.

“We continue to serve more families each year and are thrilled to have the opportunity to share the gift of reading and literacy with each one that visits us,” Prock said.
