GENESEO – The historic Wadsworth Library in Geneseo has been recognized as the ‘Library of the Year 2013’ by the Rochester Regional Library Council which has been announced to the public via their website Monday.
This particular award is presented annually in three different categories of public, private and school libraries across five different counties surrounding the area.
“The award is all based on nominations and votes coming from the public. Just about 200 individual votes were submitted [for the Wadsworth Library] and they [voters] each had to explain why they thought their library should win,” said Sarah Matthews, of the Wadsworth Library.
On Monday, the Wadsworth Library hosted an open house styled celebration in the afternoon at the library on 24 Center St. in Geneseo.
At the celebration, the Wadsworth Library showed off a new plaque and banner for the ‘Library of the Year’ for 2013, an achievement they can uphold for the entire year.
“Libraries in Monroe County have won the past several years, so it will be nice to bring the award to Livingston County,” claimed Matthews.
