The STM Library is the 2019 recipient of the James O. Modisette Award. This award is presented annually to an elementary school library, to a middle/junior high school library, and to a high school library to recognize excellence in Louisiana school library programs. Nominees are judged on the quality of their programs and the degree to which the programs meet the needs of the school. The application for the award includes information about the library's collection of print and online resources for student use, the literacy skills the librarians address, and how the librarians collaborate with teachers to improve student research skills. The award will be presented March 14 at the Louisiana Library Association annual conference in Baton Rouge. Congratulations to these wonderful ladies for this prestigious award.
