“The Plano Public Library was recently recognized with three state awards from the Texas Library Association, the city said in an announcement.
Among the honors was the Demco/Upstart Innovative Programming Award, which recognizes libraries with innovative programs that other organizations can adapt and replicate.
Additionally, Plano Public Library was recognized by the Texas Library Association Branding Iron Award for its marketing and promoting of library programs and services.
The award was based on the library’s submission of the 2021 Annual Report, which showcased the organization’s impact on the community, the announcement said. This was the 10th time the library received the award.
Finally, the library received the Texas Library Association Texas Youth Creators Award, which recognizes excellence in amateur media production.”
Despite receiving enough awards already, Plano Library will still be holding various programs throughout the year and the upcoming one is a virtual workshop according to a Dallas Morning News article from June 7. They say,
“Participants will learn about careers in automotive technology, collision repair, vehicle maintenance, and how to get started.
Some of the automotive careers that are in demand include tech-focused roles, hands-on work and management roles, the library stated in an announcement.
Collision repair technicians, for example, are responsible for estimating repair costs based on damage and restoring vehicles to look and perform before they were damaged.
Some of the skills required for collision technicians include grinding, sanding and filling repaired surfaces, welding parts into place and applying new paint.
This virtual program will be made possible through the effort of Collin College, Caliber Collision and Plano itself as they aim to give a chance to people to reach for a work in the field of mechanics and technicians whose salary averages $46,880 per year.
