Brooklyn Public Library Received the 2016 National Medal for Museum and Library Service

Last week, the Brooklyn Public Library received the nation's highest honor for museums and libraries in a ceremony at the White House with First Lady Michelle Obama.

The Library was recognized in part for the work of its Outreach Services Department, which offers citizenship classes for new Americans, creative aging workshops for older adults, an oral history project for veterans and the Books-to-Go program for homebound library patrons.
