Description

Two libraries earned this year’s American Library Association (ALA) Presidential Citation for Innovative International Library Projects. The winning entries include a program that teaches information literacy through calligraphy and a community center that’s creating a new model for library governance.

The citations began as an initiative of 2007–2008 ALA President Loriene Roy. Presented by the International Relations Round Table, the awards recognize exemplary services and projects that draw attention to libraries creating positive change, demonstrating sustainability, and providing a model for others to follow.

This year’s winners are Run Run Shaw Library at City University of Hong Kong (CityU, pictured above) and La Bulle, a library and community space in Annemasse, France.
