City of Plainview’s Unger Memorial Library Receives Accreditation from the Texas State Library & Arc

Library

As an accredited Library, Unger Memorial Library is eligible to participate in the statewide interlibrary loan system, E-rate – the federal telecommunications discount program, TexShare Database Program, the TexShare Card Program, and any funding opportunities offered through the Texas State Library.

To remain an accredited library, staff are required to complete a report detailing the Library’s activities and collections including financial reports, electronic catalogs, print and audio book collections, available databases and print subscriptions. They also report statistics including the number of patrons who visited the Library, amount and types of programs offered, staff and volunteer hours, patron computer and website usage and operating hours.

“Accreditation is more than a congratulations from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission,” says Jeff Johnston, Assistant City Manager. “It acknowledges the hard work Cynthia and her staff have done and allows them to provide more great services to our citizens.”

Unger Memorial Library is located at 825 N. Austin and is open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. For more information, contact the Library at 296-1148.
