Oct: Little Library with a Big Heart: Southern Area Public Library, WV: Best Small Library in America 2013 (Nebraska Library Commission)

October 23 (8-9 am PST)

With the enthusiasm and leadership of director Mary Beth Stenger, Southern Area Public Library, in Lost Creek, WV, has been transformed from a good, traditional public library into a modern, bustling center of community activity, information, and learning. This transformation convinced the judges to name it the Best Small Library in America 2013, cosponsored by Library Journal and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Mary will share how the library has developed creative programming and innovative services to serve their community of 498, with the help of just one other library staff member, a team of volunteers and a small Board of Trustees.
