Wayne Williams Project of the Year

Honoring a project exemplifying the highest level of achievement and professional standards.

The Texas Library Association Wayne Williams Library Project of the Year Award recognizes a project that showcases the highest levels of achievement, professional standards; and provides inspiration to other libraries. The project must have been operating during the preview calendar year, may involve more than one library and is open to any type of library. The committee considers the breadth of the project and the extent to which the library has improved its service by means of the project. A cash award is given in memory of long-time bookseller, Wayne Williams.

Tom Green County Library in San Angelo was awarded the 2021 Texas Library Association’s Wayne Williams Project of the Year Award for “Creating Accessible Children’s Libraries: Touching Lives with Books.”

In this project, the library led the charge to create two beautifully-decorated and well-stocked library rooms at the two Boys and Girls Clubs in San Angelo.

Here, Tom Green County Library Director Jill Donegan accepts the award:
