LibraryAware Community Award Winner, 2013: Canton Public Library and Canton Township, MI

For mutually fostering a beneficial connection, Canton and its library have won the inaugural LibraryAware Community Award, co­sponsored by Library Journal and LibraryAware, a product of EBSCO Publishing’s NoveList Division. The Canton Public Library will receive $10,000 and the township will receive a plaque. The award was created to honor a library for “getting out to the community and demonstrating its value” and to highlight a community that values its library, says Nancy Dowd, product lead for LibraryAware.
