The Palm Beach County Library System, FL was honored with the Urban Library Council Top innovator Award in Civic and Community Engagement for the program:

  • Embedded Librarians in County Government


Library staff working in eight county departments provided a valuable boost to research capacity while building stronger internal department connections, enhancing job satisfaction, raising awareness of library capacity, and building a commitment to civic engagement. The Embedded Librarians in County Government matched library staff research expertise with department needs to complete projects that supported community priorities.

“As an integral part of county government, the library system with all of its resources and talented staff is providing expert research services to assist county departments in improving the quality of life for all county residents. The Embedded Librarians project is an opportunity for the library to expand beyond our walls to where research is most needed.” —Doug Crane, Director, Palm Beach County Library System
