JCPL Receives National Recognition for Innovation & Excellence
Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) received national recognition for innovation and excellence from Library Journal and Gale, part of Cengage Learning, in their 2010 Library of the Year award competition. Columbus Metropolitan Library, in Columbus, Ohio, was named 2010 Library of the Year, and JCPL was one of three public libraries recognized for "demonstrating the service philosophy and dedication to community that signify a Library of the Year." Special recognition was also given to Anythink-Rangeview Library District, Northglenn, CO and King County Library System, Issaquah, WA.

The Library of the Year award is the most prestigious award a public library can be granted. It is granted to a public library in the United States that best demonstrates service to the community; creativity and innovation in developing specific community programs; a dramatic increase in library usage; and/or leadership in creating programs that can be emulated by other libraries.

Stories from Pine and Buffalo Creek Now Online!

New interviews have just been added to JCPL's Digital History Collection.  Digitized from cassette tapes donated to JCPL by the North Fork Library Association, these interviews represent a small piece of a larger collection donated to the library.  These interviews with residents of the North Fork Valley tell the story of Pine, Buffalo Creek, and the surrounding area.  The library is pleased to be able to preserve and share these valuable memories through its online library. 

To listen to interviews and read written transcripts, just search for the title "North Fork Valley Oral History Project" in the library catalog and keep an eye on JCPL's Digital History Collection for more oral history interviews in the coming months.
