Proposals will be judged on the following:
- Collaborative efforts of the staff and community in the planning and implementation process.
- Measurements of success in the community based on usage, program attendance, or greater community awareness.
- Sustainability of the program over time.
- Program can be replicated by other public libraries.
- Quality and appropriateness of submitted materials (supporting documents may be included).
Any innovative, cutting-edge program, activity or service will be considered. Has your library developed a dynamic solution to a problem?
