Excellence in Marketing and Public Relations
Hernando County Public Library System
Each year, the Florida Library Association (FLA) honors outstanding libraries, individuals, businesses and library supporters during its annual conference held May 7-9, 2014 at the Lake Buena Vista Palace Hotel. Award recipients are selected from a large number of applicants for the quality of their service to their local communities and to the library profession. This year, the Hernando County Public Library System received the award for “Excellence in Marketing and Public Relations”.
Last year, when the Hernando County Public Library System (HCPL) was selected as FLA’s 2013 Library of the Year, Hernando County was in the midst of a difficult budget year, and HCPL was facing a shortfall of over one million dollars. Winning the FLA award was just what HCPL needed for leverage, and it became the center of our community awareness and advocacy campaign. We used our award to create widespread awareness among community members of the importance of HCPL. Our objectives were to keep HCPL fully funded, to receive community support and recognition, and to build staff morale by recognizing and celebrating this important achievement.
The Hernando County Public Library is very pleased to announce that, thanks to a generous no-cost lease approved by the Board of the Ridge Manor Community Center, we will now be able to offer Library Services to patrons on the East side of Hernando County!
Starting Tuesday, March 4th, 2014, a temporary Branch of the East Hernando Library will be open at the Ridge Manor Community Center, located at 34240 Cortez Boulevard, Ridge Manor, FL 33523.
