Congratulations to the Kirbyville Public Library!

They are the 2016 winner of the Baker & Taylor Entertainment Audio Music/Video Product Award awarded by the Public Library Association (PLA).

Here is more information from the PLA awards press release:

“Kirbyville Public Library will use the $2,500 award to expand the audio music/video circulation collection for juvenile patrons. The main focus for expansion will be in three specific areas:

  1. curating a selection of audio music and video products that stimulate visual pathways, pre-literacy skills, and provide exposure to varied vocabulary and languages;
  2. maintaining products that encourage development of language and logical reasoning as a vital part of literacy and social skills as well as interpersonal communication skills; and
  3. providing products in the collection targeting preteen and teens with materials that address appropriate educational milestones in language, math, history, and science as well as addressing body image, personal ethics, conflict resolution, and peer pressure.”
