The Haines Public Library is in the running for a prestigious national award.
The library is one of 30 finalists for the 2017 National Medal for Museum and Library Service. It is the highest honor in the nation for libraries.
The Institute of Museum and Library Services chooses finalists based on significant and exceptional contributions they’ve made to their communities.
The winner will be announced later this spring, and representatives from the winning institutions will travel to Washington D.C. for the National Medal Award Ceremony.
