The 2017 State Librarian Excellence Awards were presented at the SLEA Luncheon on October 2oth in Lansing., Michigan. The Foundation provides the Excellence Awards and invites the director and staff of the winning libraries to the luncheon . This year the Foundation was pleased to also welcome the Foundation’s top donors from our most recent fundraising year as appreciation and recognition for their generous support.

The Library of Michigan Foundation’s State Librarian’s Excellence Award   is awarded yearly to a library that exemplifies excellence in customer service. One library in Michigan receives this prestigious award with a $3,000 cash prize, as well as a distinctive trophy for display in its public area. Two Library of Michigan Foundation Citations of Excellence are also presented, with the honored two libraries each receiving $1,000 and a beautiful trophy for display. Winning libraries are selected for superior service to their customers and community.
