For the second consecutive year, the Decatur Public Library earned the Achievement of Excellence Award from the Texas Municipal League. The library also won the award in 2006.
It’s a prestigious award that was given to only 27 libraries in the state of Texas this year, and librarian Cecilia Barham said it’s rewarding to see that their work is impacting the community.
“I just think it means we’re doing something right,” said Barham. “It’s awarded based on how you’re serving your community, and this is a formal acknowledgement that we’re meeting our community’s needs.”
