Orange Librarians Receive Award of Distinction
The Orange High School (OHS), Brady Middle School (BMS), and Moreland Hills Elementary School (MHS) librarians were recently presented with the Ohio Educational Library Media Association's (OELMA) District Library Program of Distinction.
OELMA is a professional association for highly effective school librarians and libraries with its mission being to "meet the needs of Ohio's learners while advocating for and providing professional development to school librarians."

In her acceptance speech, McNally noted, "We are teacher-librarians who collaborate with our peers and as stated in our mission statement, work "to ensure that students and staff are effective users of ideas and information; independent, lifelong learners; and socially responsible citizens."
Orange is the only District in the state to receive this prestigious award this year.
