That's great news.  We can use this to help in future endeavors at the
legislature.  Congratulations to the library folks.  And, thanks, Mike.

Dear PAC - 

I am so excited to let you know that your very own Washington Talking
Book & Braille Library has won the NLS Network Library of the Year Award
for 2009!!

Here is some information on the award:

The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped
(NLS) Network Library of the Year award commends excellence, innovation,
and special achievement in providing library service to blind and
physically handicapped individuals in a calendar year.  The 2009 Network
Library of the Year is the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library
(WTBBL).  WTBBL was selected based on the following criteria: 

*         Mission support the extent to which the library reached or
exceeded the ALA Revised Standards and Guidelines of Service

*         Creativity and innovation the extent to which the library
developed new patron services or marketed existing services in an
exceptional manner

*         Patron satisfaction the extent to which the library met the
needs of its patrons during the year

The awards will be presented during a luncheon at the Library of
Congress in Washington,D.C., on Friday, June 18, 2010. This special
event honoring the Network Library Award winners and their administering
agencies will be featured in NLS News, other Library of Congress
publications, and in a national news release. NLS will cover travel
costs to the ceremony for a representative of each winning network
library and a representative of their administering agencies.

The award recipient receives $1,000, a plaque, a certificate for the
network library, and a copy of the certificate for the administering
agency. A separate plaque recognizing the recipients will be displayed
at NLS.

All the best,



Danielle Miller
