The North Dakota State Library and the North Dakota Library Coordinating Council have contacted our library via NDSL to inform us we have achieved the EXCELLING level for the NDLCC standards for Public Libraries. The NDSL and NDLCC adopted new standards in 2019. To be considered Excelling, a library must meet the standards at both the developing and Excelling levels. The New Town City Library is one of seven libraries to achieve the excelling level. We’re so elated to share this proud moment with you all, thank you!
