Education, Literacy and Lifelong Learning

Libraries are the center of lifelong learning in local communities. They provide a continuum of programs and services that begin in early childhood. These programs continue through school-age years and young adulthood, eventually helping people through the gateways of higher and continuing education. The ultimate goal of these programs is to provide informal learning activities that continuously enrich people’s lives.

This category recognizes innovations in early childhood learning; after-school and summer learning programs; partnering with schools and school districts; engaging teens and young adults; as well as educational and enrichment programs that promote lifelong learning, including adult/family and English as a Second Language services.
