El Paso Public Library Receives State Library Excellence Award

The City of El Paso announced Tuesday that the El Paso Public Library has received the 2017 Achievement of Excellence in Libraries Award from the Texas Municipal Library Directors Association (TMLDA).

“This is the first time that the library has received this recognition,” said El Paso Public Library Director Mark Pumphrey. “We are extremely proud that the TMLDA chose to recognize the important work that libraries in El Paso do every day. From providing developmental resources for children, teens and adults to supporting economic development, El Paso’s libraries play a vital role in our quality of life.”

The TMLDA recognizes Texas libraries that meet a high level of excellence in programming and services. The award is given to libraries that demonstrate excellence in 10 categories including services to underserved communities, programming for adults and families, literacy support for all ages, workforce development and community partnerships, among others.

Only 52 out of 548 Texas public library systems received the prestigious award.

The Texas Municipal Library Directors Association (TMLDA) promotes the public library profession, improves the methods of providing library service, and maintains high standards of professional ethics. More information on the TMLDA and the Achievement of Excellence Award is available online.

Information on the services provided by the El Paso Public Library is available online.
