2015 ELSA Awarded

North Lake County Public Library has been awarded the Excellent Library Service Award (ELSA) for 2015. The award was presented at the Montana Library Association conference in Bozeman last week by Montana State Library Commission Chair Colet Bartow. 

The ELSA recognizes libraries for achieving excellence in serving their communities in areas including collection development, information access, policies, planning and evaluation, fiscal management, board accomplishments, continuing education for staff and trustees, and outreach to the community.  ELSA requirements are adapted from Montana’s current Public Library Standards, which serves as a measuring tool for libraries in the state. 

Forty-two Montana libraries of all types – academic, special, public, and school – received the ELSA in 2015.
