Nebraska Library Commission Announces Accreditation for Public Libraries

Nebraska Library Commission Library Development Director Richard Miller recently announced the accreditation of public libraries across Nebraska. Miller stated, “We are dedicated to helping Nebraska libraries meet Nebraskans’ information needs, opening up the world of information for citizens of all ages. The Library Commission continues to work in partnership with Nebraska libraries and the regional library systems, using the Public Library Accreditation program to help public libraries grow and develop.”

Public libraries in Nebraska are accredited for a three-year period, from October 1 of the first year, through September 30 of the third year. To learn more about this process, and see a complete list of all accredited Nebraska libraries, see the Nebraska Library Commission website (nlc.nebraska.gov), search on Accreditation. The Nebraska Library Commission congratulates the public libraries listed below as they move forward toward the realization of this vision for the future: “All Nebraskans will have improved access to enhanced library and information services, provided and facilitated by qualified library personnel, boards, and supporters with the knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes necessary to provide excellent library and information services.” As the state library agency, the Nebraska Library Commission is an advocate for the library and information needs of all Nebraskans. The mission of the Library Commission is statewide promotion, development, and coordination of library and information services, “bringing together people and information.” Nebraska Public Libraries Newly Accredited through September 30, 2018 Ainsworth Public Library Alliance Public Library Auburn Memorial Library Aurora, Alice M Farr Library Bassett, Rock County Public Library Beatrice Public Library Beaver City Public Library Beemer, Karlen Memorial Library Bellevue Public Library Bennington Public Library Bloomfield Public Library Blue Hill Public Library Broadwater Public Library Broken Bow Public Library Central City Public Library Clarkson Public Library Clearwater Public Library Creighton Public Library Crete Public Library Culbertson Public Library David City, Hruska Memorial Public Library DeWitt, Bob and Wauneta Burkley Library and Resource Center Emerson Public Library Exeter Public Library Fairbury Public Library Fairmont Public Library Friend, Gilbert Public Library Genoa Public Library Gering Public Library Gibbon Public Library Gordon City Library Gothenburg Public Library Grand Island Public Library Gretna Public Library Hartington Public Library Hildreth Public Library Holdrege Area Public Library Hooper Public Library Hyannis, Grant County Library Lied Imperial Public Library Kimball Public Library La Vista Public Library Lexington Public Library Lincoln City Libraries Loup City Public Library Madison Public Library McCook Public Library Minden, Jensen Memorial Library Mitchell Public Library Nebraska City, Morton-James Public Library Newman Grove Public Library Norfolk Public Library North Platte Public Library Oakland Public Library Omaha Public Library O’Neill Public Library Ord Township Library Orleans, Cordelia B Preston Memorial Library Oshkosh Public Library Palisade Public Library Papillion, Sump Memorial Library Pilger Public Library Plainview Carnegie Library Plattsmouth Public Library Schuyler Public Library Lied Scottsbluff Public Library Scribner Public Library Seward Memorial Library South Sioux City Public Library Stanton Public Library Stromsburg Public Library Superior Public Library Lied Tekamah Public Library Raymond A Whitwer Tilden Public Library Valentine Public Library Wausa, Lied Lincoln Township Library Wayne Public Library Weeping Water Public Library West Point, John A Stahl Library Wilber, Dvoracek Memorial Library Wymore Public Library Yutan Public Library
