Octavia Fellin Public Library Receives National Medal for Museum and Library Service

| May 21, 2014 | 0 Comments

The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the primary source of federal funding for our nation’s museums and libraries, awarded the Octavia Fellin Public Library as one of 10 recipients of this year’s National Medal for Museum and Library Service. The award is the nation’s highest honor given to museums and libraries for service to the community and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.  Click here for more information.

Octavia Fellin Public Library was chosen as a recipient for serving and supporting the Gallup community. As you probably know, the population Octavia Fellin serves is 75% Native American and has in the past had limited access to programming centering on Native American culture and heritage. Octavia Fellin Public Library has provided much-needed access to Navajo-based programming, Hopi drummers, and Native American authors and history speakers. The library prides itself on its ability to serve all ages, backgrounds, and interests. There are many members of the local community who can say that the programs at the library have changed their lives – Maria Elena Reyes is one example. Click here for  Maria’s story.
