Pierce County libraries earn national honor

The Pierce County Library System has been named one of 10 recipients of a national honor awarded by the agency that distributes federal support for the nation’s 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums.

The National Medal for Museum and Library Service will be presented next month in Washington, D.C.

Pierce County library programs that offer fun learning experiences for children and ones that reach out to a diverse community and a highly mobile population influenced by the presence of the Joint Base Lewis-McChord helped it earn the honor, according to The Institute of Museum and Library Services.

This year’s 10 honorees span the country, from the Boston Children’s Museum to the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana, Calif.

Last year’s medal-winners included the Pacific Science Center in Seattle.
