Limitless Libraries is recipient of the 2011 Tennessee Resource Sharing Award

The recipient of the 2011 Tennessee Resource Sharing Award is Limitless Libraries, a unique partnership between Nashville Public Library (NPL) and Metro Nashville Public Schools (MNPS) that combines the purchasing power and resources of both entities to facilitate students' access to library resources wherever they are in the city. Students can borrow resources from NPL to their school library; NPL has started purchasing resources for MNPS; and the two institutions have started buying e-resources together.

Accepting the award presented by Tricia Bengel, Tenn-Share President, at the Tenn-Share Conference on October 28, was Danielle Mezera, Director for the Mayor's Office of Youth and Children. Ms Mezera and Nashville Mayor Karl Dean conceived of the program; it was led by Ms Mezera.
