Says Libraries are an Important Key to Student Success

Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz congratulated Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS) for being named the 2017 National School Library Program of the Year by the American Association of School Librarians. The award was presented this weekend to BCPS as a school system that exemplifies the effective use and promotion of their library resources to staff and students.

“This is further evidence of the great job our schools are doing in preparing students for college and career success by teaching them how to do good research and harness the wealth of library materials and knowledge at their disposal,” Kamenetz said. “I thank and congratulate our school library professionals for helping to make learning exciting and for fostering a thirst for knowledge that really helps engage students.”

“The public education system’s ability to promote learning is important in creating future leaders and entrepreneurs,” said County Council Chair Tom Quirk. “This award shows that BCPS takes these ideals seriously and is doing an outstanding job at creating better learners.”
