Labor of Love: Best Small Library in America 2011

Congratulations to the community of Naturita who taxed themselves to create this unique and gorgeous facility. “High five” to library director, Paul Paladino, and to the entire staff and board at the library district. You guys rock! The full story Library Journal story here.
