• Summer Reading Program
• Services to Underserved Populations
• Enhanced Service
• Marketing Materials
• Policies and Procedures
• Programming for Adults and Families
• Literacy Support
• Collaborative Efforts
• Staff Training; and
• Library Web Presence

“It's wonderful to once again share this award with the incredible community our staff and patrons have created at the Keller Public Library,” Director Jana Prock said. "Sharing the gift of reading with patrons of all ages, interests and abilities is a passion for everyone on our staff, and it's an honor to have that passion be recognized at the state level for a seventh year."

The Keller Public Library kept busy during Fiscal Year 2015-16, assisting 232,604 patrons circulate 421,464 books, magazines, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs and more. And with hundreds of events and programs annually focused on literacy, computer skills, arts and crafts, and storytelling, it’s no surprise that membership also continues to grow.
