Williamsburg book lovers rejoice: Your local library has entered the final round of a nationwide best library contest.
Voting is now open for the Leslie B. Knope Award championship round, which recognizes public libraries that motivate, inspire, and attract the best to local government.
In this round, the library is squaring off against the Pueblo City-County Library in Colorado.
Voting for the final round ends on Friday, March 2, at 11:59 p.m.
The best library competition nominates more than 100 libraries from around the country. The 32 libraries with the most votes moved onto a round of brackets-style competition, vying against other libraries.
In the previous round, Williamsburg Regional Library beat out a library in Baytown, Texas with 51.05 percent of the vote.
The award is named after the main character on the television show “Parks and Rec.”
The award is given by Engaging Local Government Leaders, a professional association for innovative local government leaders.
