Cross Plains Public Library Wins Excellence Award
The Library, also a 2010 finalist for Library Journal‘s Best Small Library in America award, serves a population of around 2,000 with a variety of programs including a trivia contest and barbecue, teen writing contests, and much, much more. This heart-of-the-community library is also home to a collection of original manuscripts by Robert E. Howard, originator of the character Conan the Barbarian.
