After the ceremony in Washington, D.C., there were still many rewarding moments as our community acknowledged our National Medal. We received a visit and proclamation from Congressman John Carter.
The Mayor of Georgetown, Dale Ross, stopped by to celebrate our National Medal win with a proclamation and a special item…our very own challenge coin! Coins were give to staff and to Library Advisory and Friends of the Library board members.
When our medal arrived, it brought a bit more fanfare along with it.
A photographer from the Williamson County Sun came to take a photograph of it.
Here, Flat Reggie (back from Washington, D.C.) wore it for a photo at the circulation desk.
The medal itself will be placed in a display case in the library lobby along with a U.S. flag that flew over the state capitol in honor of our library’s accomplishment, one of the challenge coins presented by the Mayor, and other items.
None of this would be possible without the hard work of our staff:
Eric Lashley | Sally Miculek | Elisabeth Aulwurm | Robert Barber | Valerie Barber | Sally Bernier
Sarah Blankenship | Suzette Davidson | Kristina Gonzales Zepeda | Sheila Gauntt | Jaime Gould | Dana Hendrix | Bethni King
Rita Kirkpatrick | Patrick Lloyd| Joyce May | Sheri Miklaski | Melissa Mote | Denise Mozingo
Toni Nietfeld | Kathy Olmstead | Rachael Pattillo | Gloria Powers | Kalena Powell | Debbie Scott
Leaf Walker | Lawren Weiss
As the National Medal excitement winds down, we plan for a visit from StoryCorps. Read more about it here.
