State Senator Mike Kowall and Director of District Affairs Lynn O'Brien, 15th district, honored four Novi school librarians and their libraries at Thursday's school board meeting.
"I love my job so I'm excited to be getting honored for doing my job," said Bethany Bratney, librarian at Novi High School, at the reception before the meeting.
The library media centers achieved exemplary status in the Library of Michigan's School Library 21: Measurement Criteria for Michigan School Libraries for 21st Century Schools program. The program recognizes and commends performance by K-12 libraries. The librarians received special recognition for leading their libraries' efforts in achieving that status.
