5 Museums, 5 Libraries Receive Nation's Highest Honor

Institutions from eight states, including New York, plus Puerto Rico, were awarded a 2008 National Medal for Museum and Library Service.

First Lady Laura Bush awarded these museums and libraries at a White House ceremony on October 7. Each year, the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), in coordination with the White House, presents the National Medal to 10 museums and libraries "in recognition of their extraordinary civic, educational, economic, environmental, and social contributions."
