10 Museums, Libraries Awarded National Medals

Yesterday, the Institute of Museum and Library Services awarded exemplary museum and libraries National Medals for their service to their communities. The National Medal is the nation’s highest honor conferred on museums and libraries, and celebrates institutions that make a difference for individuals, families, and communities.

This year’s honorees come from a variety of library and museum institutions, including public libraries, a children’s museum, music museum, art museum, and multiple county library systems.

National Medal recipients include:

“We applaud the winners of the 2013 National Medal for Museum and Library Service,” said Maureen Sullivan, president of the American Library Association. “These institutions have made exceptional contributions to their communities. We applaud them for their accomplishments and we thank them for their service.”
