Baker & Taylor is a proud sponsor of Library Journal’s Best Small Library in America Award. Library Journal’s annual award for the Best Small Library in America, was founded in 2005 to encourage and showcase the exemplary work of outstanding small libraries in the country. It honors the U.S. public library that most profoundly demonstrates outstanding service to populations of 25,000 or less. This year’s winner is Madison County Public Libraries, in Madison NC. The Madison County Public Libraries (MCPL) has fully engaged its community with partnerships, outreach, relationships, and top-notch professional service. The result is a rejuvenated three-branch system that is such an exemplary model, thus it being as LJ’s 2018 Best Small Library in America.
