A Good Reason to Visit the White House
Posted by: Keir Graff

Warm congratulations to the good people at the Kansas City Public Library (“Kansas City Public Library wins 2008 National Medal for Museum and Library Services,” by Joe Robertson, Kansas City Star):

The creative partners behind the Kansas City Public Library know they have been on a roll.

And now they have the nation’s highest honor for libraries to show for it.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services announced Monday that Kansas City is one of five libraries across the country that will receive the 2008 National Medal for Museum and Library Services in a White House ceremony with first lady Laura Bush on Oct. 7.

There’s a special Booklist connection to KCPL: Kaite Mediatore Stover, the library’s Head of Readers’ Services, writes our She Reads column, blogs at Book Group Buzz, and fills in for me here at Likely Stories during my summer vacation. She is also completely barking mental, and I mean that in the best way possible. We’re honored by our association with her.
