  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
