In the library lobby, we held a surprise announcement party for the community. In attendance were Georgetown Mayor Dale Ross, Texas State Library and Archives Commission director and librarian Mark Smith, current and former library employees and volunteers, a bevy of other City employees, community supporters, well-wishers and library patrons…and a good number of balloons as well!
Attending the announcement were Library Advisory Board member John Hudson and Sharon Snuffer, a member of the Arts and Culture Board. They are shown here with library director Eric Lashley.
Congratulations in order for the @GTPublicLibrary for being awarded the National Medal as one of the outstanding libraries in the USA! Well done Eric Lashley, library director. pic.twitter.com/WeuNjKRPAK
