Innovations in Reading Prize

LGBT Books to Prisoners receives an honorable mention
Honorable Mention
Through Limitless Libraries, Nashville’s public and school librarians work together to help students become strong readers, successful learners, and curious thinkers and creators.
Metro government and private donors have embraced the program, which gives students and teachers on-campus access to Nashville Public Library’s catalog through daily delivery to 125 public elementary, middle, and high schools across town.
A 2013 independent study tied student’s use of Limitless Libraries to higher academic test scores. Meanwhile, Limitless has infused $6 million into strengthening school library collections and another $4 million into transforming eight school libraries into dynamic spaces for reading, collaborative learning, and creation.
