A taste of recognition for Nelson Library

The Nelson Public Library was honoured with a Merit Award for marketing and advocacy

The Nelson Public Library was honoured with a Merit Award for marketing and advocacy at the British Columbia Library Conference earlier this month.

The award recognized last fall’s Taste of Nelson initiative that partnered the library with Nelson’s Chocofellar to create bars with literary titles such as Pride and Pecans and Call of the Wild Hazelnut, and with Oso Negro Roastery to produce a library blend called Read All Night! The initiative also produced a series of artist bookmarks by Lainey Benson, Rick Foulger, Yvonne Vanens-Munro and Keira Zaslove.
