Big news: Our library system was just named Library of the year by Library Journal magazine. This is an extremely prestigious and coveted award among libraries. It is like winning the Oscar for Best Picture (only in this case “best library).

This is a separate award from the one Sammamish got last month for being a “landmark library”. Wow, lots of awards for libraries around here! Yeah!

I couldn’t tell you about it at the Friends Meeting last week because it was top secret until today. That’s why the photographers were out here last week!
