El Paso Public Library earns 2019 Achievement of Excellence in Libraries Award

Tuesday morning, officials with the City of El Paso announced that the El Paso Public Library (EPPL) has received the 2019 Achievement of Excellence in Libraries Award.

The award was presented by the Texas Municipal Library Directors Association (TMLDA), an affiliate of the Texas Municipal League.

“The Achievement of Excellence in Libraries Award is recognition of the excellent work our employees are doing to make El Paso a great place to live,” said El Paso Public Library Interim Director Norma Martinez.

Of the 571 public libraries in Texas, the EPPL is one of 53 public libraries to receive the prestigious award, ranking it in the top 10 percent in the state. The library also received the award in 2017.

To receive the Achievement of Excellence in Libraries Award, applicants must demonstrate excellence in 10 categories, which include services to underserved communities, programming for adults and families, literacy support for all ages, workforce development and community partnerships, and promotional and marketing support for library programs and services.

Receiving the award is another example of the library and the City supporting the vision of providing exceptional recreational, cultural, and educational opportunities for our community.
