2012 John Cotton Dana Award Winner
Fredricksen Library Receives
2012 John Cotton Dana Award
Fredricksen Library is one of eight recipients nationwide of the 2012 John Cotton Dana Award presented by the American Library Association (ALA), which honors outstanding achievement in library public relations. The Library received the award for its program,
Bee Local @ Fredricksen Library: A Honey & Local Foods Festival
a collaborative event designed to promote library services to the public. The John Cotton Dana
(JCD) honor is considered the most prestigious of all library awards in the field of public relations.
In recognition of their achievement, John Cotton Dana award winners receive a cash development grant of $10,000 from the H.W. Wilson Foundation.
Kim Terry, John Cotton Dana Committee Chair, remarked that the “quality was outstanding.”
“To be one of only eight libraries nationwide to receive this award is an incredible honor,” said Fredricksen Library Director Bonnie Goble.
“Bee Local was a huge community success. We are grateful that the Festival, and our public relations effort, have been recognized as outstanding in the library field.”
Fredricksen Library is looking forward to plans for the 2nd Annual
Bee Local @ Fredricksen Library
on September 15, 2012.
