This year, the Institute of Museum and Library Services celebrated the 20th anniversary of recognizing outstanding institutions with the National Medal.
The Sam Noble Museum joins the impressive list of winners that promote a love of learning and demonstrate the innovative ways our museums and libraries promote civic engagement.
Beyond access to books, art, exhibits and artifacts, these institutions provide hands-on and technology-rich learning opportunities, strong education and cultural programs, and skills development for the 21st century work force.
The diverse knowledge set and engaging experiences offered by libraries and museums prepare citizens to be full participants in their local communities and our global society.
But don’t take my — or George Washington’s — word for it. Stop in and visit the Sam Noble Museum, one of the most exemplary museums that Oklahoma, and our nation, has to offer.
