2010 Friends' Beyond the Budget Award Goes to the Acquisitions Department
Dora Sims, Past-President of the Friends of BPL, presents BPL Librarian Caleb West with the 2010 Beyond the Budget Award for the purchase of eBooks. Congratulations to Caleb and the Acquisitions Department for such an outstanding proposal and idea!
Each year, the Friends encourage BPL departments and branch libraries to submit proposals for the funding of new programs, equipment, or materials not included in the Library's operating budget. The Friends Board of Directors choose one project and award a grant up to $1,500 to the chosen department or branch library. The goal of this award is to identify needs and help the staff and patrons of BPL.
BPL will really benefit from the purchase of this new material. For more information on eBooks, click here.
BPL would like to extend a big thank you to the Friends of BPL!
