The Richland County Library in Columbia was recently honored by The Institute of Museum and Library Services as a recipient of the 2017 National Medal for Museum and Library Service. The award is the highest honor that is given to museums and libraries, and Richland County’s library had been nominated for this prestigious award for the two previous years in a row before this year’s win. Richland County’s library is one of only five libraries and five museums to receive the award each year.
