• Summer Reading Program
• Services to Underserved Populations
• Enhanced Service
• Marketing Materials
• Policies and Procedures
• Programming for Adults and Families
• Literacy Support
• Collaborative Efforts
• Staff Training; and
• Library Web Presence
The Keller Public Library broke new service records during the last year fiscal year, assisting 237,088 patrons circulate 561,472 books, magazines, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs and more. And with hundreds of events and programs annually focused on literacy, computer skills, arts and crafts, and storytelling, it’s no surprise that membership also continues to grow. More than 26,300 Keller residents currently have a Keller Public Library card.
“We continue to serve more families each year and are thrilled to have the opportunity to share the gift of reading with every patron who visits us,” Library Director Jana Prock said. “Our programming and policies are an extension of that commitment, and it’s wonderful to have our hardworking staff members honored for their work by such a prestigious award.”
