A Delaware Library has been voted one of the nation’s best.
The Wilmington Branch library at Rodney Square recently received a National Medal for Museum and Library Services which is the nation’s highest honor for a library from The Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Wilmington’s award was one of six selected from 30 national finalists. IMLS officials say the winners represent “institutions that provide dynamic programming and services that exceed expected levels of service. Through their community outreach, these institutions bring about change that touches the lives of individuals and helps communities thrive.”
In addition to being one of the nation’s oldest libraries – founded in 1788, the Wilmington Library was also recently voted by Fodor’s Travel as being the third most beautiful library in the country.
Library Director Jamar Rahming came on DETV’s GMW and talked about his plans with the library and discussed the library’s National Medal for Museum and Library Services.
