Schlow In The Running For Leslie B. Knope Best Public Library Award
As Leslie Knope famously said, “The library is the worst group of people ever assembled in history. They’re mean, conniving, rude, and extremely well-read, which makes them dangerous.”
The Schlow Centre Region Library is now one of 32 public libraries in the running for the Leslie B. Knope Award — Nation’s Best Public Library — inspired by Amy Poehler’s character on the NBC comedy series Parks and Recreation. Knope is a civil servant who works hard to improve her local government in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana.
Even though Knope is known for her hatred of public libraries, the award aims to take a different approach, highlighting a library and its staff with the opposite sentiments.
You can vote in the first round here until Sunday to show the world we’ve got the best punk ass book jockeys around.
In the first round, Schlow is facing off with Livonia, Bennett Civic Center Library in Michigan. Each week the winners will advance to the next round until finalists from both the Tammy Swanson and Ron Swanson brackets compete for the title during the week of February 26.
