According to the MPLA website, this award recognizes positive support of libraries in the MPLA region as “demonstrated by repeated constant conscientious endeavors towards libraries, library staff, trustees, or professional activities.” The announcement of this award was received with smiles and cheers among the members of the FoKL Board.  We are truly honored to have been nominated as “Library Champions!”
