Let the Good Time Roll

In our one hundred plus year history we've had our share of bad times and good times. I would definitely say that we are in a good time era right now. This week, our Library is being recognized at the American Library Association's annual conference with a "Best in Show" award for our website. We are also one of 15 finalists for the SirsiDynix "Building Better Communities" award. Some of the other finalists include the Smithsonian in Washington DC, the Shanghai Library in China, and The World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland.
If you are not familiar with Kankakee, IL you may think that we are a large metropolitan library serving a well educated and economically affluent community. While the latest census figures tell a different story, you may soon be right. A public library is a reflection of its community. Our community celebrates diversity and innovation; it values hard work and education. That's a recipe for prosperity.
