The Washington Public Library has received a special achievement allowing them to be a part of other libraries with the same distinction in the state. Library Director Debbie Stanton says they have met the conditions for state accreditation from Iowa Library Services. This accreditation allows them to receive more compensation from the Iowa Library Services’ Enrich Iowa program.
Stanton says they were recognized for their efforts in all areas of library operations including governance and funding, staffing, library collection, services, public relations, access, and facilities. The accreditation is valid through June 30, 2015.
