Minister's Award 2022
"The Minister’s Awards for Excellence in Public Library Service recognizes and celebrates the innovative programs and services offered by Alberta public libraries. Since 2010, the awards program has served as a means to identify, acknowledge, and encourage best practices in library service and to capture and communicate ideas that can be replicated in public libraries across the province."
This year, Penhold & District Library was nominated by the Town of Penhold and won the 2022 Minister’s Award for Municipal and Public Library Excellence in the Public Library Services Category (for a library board serving a population under 10,000) for our “Adventure Awaits” Summer Reading Program "in recognition of the Town of Penhold Library Board’s initiative to offer a traditional library program in an innovative way that connected people during the pandemic."
