Tempe Public Library Selected As 2019 National Medal for Museum and Library Service Finalist
Arizona’s Tempe Public Library was announced as one of the 30 finalists for the 2019 National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the nation’s highest honor given to museums and libraries for their outstanding and remarkable contributions to the communities they serve.
On its 25th year, the National Medal for Museum and Library Service celebrates institutions demonstrating remarkable and unique approaches to better not only the service they provide but also the impact and difference they make to their communities and its members' lives. With programs such as the Tempe Book Bike, Dementia Friendly Tempe – Memory Café, FanCon and its efforts to promote family engagement and expand literacy, Tempe Public Library emerged as the only finalist from Arizona.
