Best Small Library in America 2010
Berry, John N., III
Library Journal, v135 n2 p23 Feb 2010
This article features Glen Carbon Centennial Library (GCCL), Illinois, which is named "LJ"'s Best Small Library in America 2010. The attitude of doing whatever it takes to encourage every patron to come back permeates GCCL and is the foundation that makes it a model small library. GCCL delivers much "more than one expects." The library is a participating and very active member of the Lewis and Clark Library System (LCLS), headquartered in nearby Edwardsville. GCCL makes it part of its mission to provide a social gathering place for adolescents as the town has no other equivalent spot for teens. While GCCL works to maintain excellent relations with the local school district and creates both collections and service in support of the curriculum, it also works with homeschooled youth.
