The National Medal for Museum and Library Service is the nation's highest honor given to museums and libraries by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), in recognition of exceptional service to the community and for making a difference in the lives of individuals, families, and communities.
This year's finalists include individual public libraries, special and research libraries, science museums, botanical gardens, children's museums, and many other types of institutions that exemplify the great diversity of libraries and museums across the country.
We are thrilled to share that the Nantucket Historical Association
has been named as a finalist for the
2016 National Medal award (the second time in two years)!
