The Denton Public Library received the 2017 Texas Achievement in Library Excellence Award from Texas Municipal Library Directors Association this month.
The library was among 52 libraries statewide to meet the required level of programming and service, putting Denton's in the top 10 percent of libraries in the state.
The library learned of the award in a March 1 letter from the association to the city.
