State Librarian Daria Bossman provided members of state government’s Library Board today with a list of nine libraries operated by South Dakota school districts that received awards recently as 21st Century School Libraries.
Seven were deemed “exemplary.” They were Douglas Middle School, Douglas High School, Harrisburg South Middle School, Horizon Elementary (Harrisburg), Madison Central School Libraries, West Central Middle and High School and West Middle School (Rapid City).
Rapid Valley Elementary (Rapid City) and Robert Frost Elementary (Sioux Falls) received recognition as enhanced.
The schools will be recognized in October at a conference. “It’s always great to recognize those schools that meet the highest standards,” Bossman told the board. The awards are for three years.
