MCPL in the News

County Executive Leggett, ULCs Susan Benton, and Director Parker Hamilton at the award presentationMCPL won the prestigious 2016 Top Innovator Award from the Urban Libraries Council (ULC) for our Library Refresh Program!

The Refresh Program represents an innovative approach to revitalize libraries by avoiding major building renovations and long-term shutdown of facilities, and updating infrastructure and technologies towards creating 21st century libraries. The Program refreshes branches on a rotating, system-wide scale while maintaining an economical and timely approach, minimizing interruption of library availability for services within the affected community.

The award was officially presented to County Executive Isiah Leggett by ULC CEO and President Susan Benton during the reception of the annual Joint Meeting of the Montgomery County Library Board, Library Advisory Committees, and Friends of the Library on November 2.
