Montana Librarian of the Year from Great Falls

Regardless of what type of job you do for a living, being recognized for your accomplishments by your peers is an amazing feather in your cap.  Not to mention it might bring a little extra money in the paycheck at the end of the month.

Recently in Great Falls, one of our local community members has been honored for their work within the walls of our public library and has been named the Montana Librarian of the year by the Montana Library Association.
