For a fifth consecutive year, the Keller Public Library has been honored with the Achievement of Library Excellence Award from the Texas Municipal Library Directors Association. The award recognizes the Keller Library for its commitment to service in our community and educational programming.
Only 39 libraries statewide made the cut for this prestigious honor in 2014 — that’s 39 from among 565 public libraries in Texas. The award is given annually to libraries that demonstrate service excellence in 10 areas:
• Summer Reading Program
• Services to Underserved Populations
• Enhanced Service
• Marketing Materials
• Policies and Procedures
• Programming for Adults and Families
• Literacy Support
• Collaborative Efforts
• Staff Training; and
• Library Web Presence
“I am so proud of the award-winning community our staff and patrons have created here at the library,” Library Director Jana Prock said. “We continue to serve more families each year and it is wonderful to have the opportunity to share the gift of reading with patrons of all ages, abilities and interests.”
The Keller Public Library kept busy during Fiscal Year 2013-14, assisting 229,020 patrons circulate 516,693 books, magazines, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs and more. And with hundreds of events and programs annually focused on literacy, computer skills, arts and crafts, and storytelling, it’s no surprise that membership also continues to grow. Nearly 26,700 Keller residents currently have a Keller Public Library card.
