02 Aug Grove Public Library given Grand Impact Award for Services, Programs
Grove Public Library was recently recognized by the Grove Area Chamber of Commerce at its annual Business Council Awards ceremony.
The Grand Impact Award went to the library for the multitude of benefits the library provides the community through sharing valuable resources, exercise programs, health seminars, yoga, crafting, and the summer reading program. The library was also touted for its understanding of the importance of educating children, for breaking the mold of the typical stereotype of a library, for loaning items from its unique collection, and for its programs.
“They also offer services that meet the needs of many in our community. From adult craft nights, chair yoga, and seminars on edible and medicinal plants, to workshops on landscaping and water quality, the list goes on. This place truly has something for everyone, regardless of age or financial means,” the Chamber announced during the award presentations.
Eastern Oklahoma Library System Executive Director Mary Moroney appreciates the Chamber’s recognition of Grove Public Library, she said.
“Thank you, Grove Area Chamber of Commerce, for recognizing the work of the Grove Public Library with the Grand Impact Award,” Moroney said. “We consider it an honor to assist all library visitors—I encourage everyone to stop by and let us make an impact on your life.”
Grove Public Library is a branch of the Eastern Oklahoma Library System (EOLS)—a multi-county organization providing public library service through fifteen libraries in northeastern Oklahoma whose mission is to empower people by creating opportunities that enrich their lives with information, activities, and services.
