The Hancock School Public Library has earned the School Service Award, which is given out by the Copper Country Association of School Boards, along with Hancock Public Schools.
The award, which is given out every Spring, honors outstanding service to education and notable contributions to the quality of education, above and beyond expectations.
Hancock School Superintendent Dr. Steve Patchin said they were excited to present the library with the 2020 School Service Award.
Since lock down orders went into effect in mid-March, the library has worked tirelessly to ensure students had access to educational materials, needed for distance learning.
Library Manager Boni Ashburn said she is excited to be working with Hancock Schools.
Library staff has also prepared the school’s fleet of Chromebooks, which is up to 140, for students to use.
The library also made library card registration available online, during the COVID-19 pandemic, to make sure they’re digital learning resources were available 24/7.
Now, anyone can sign up for a digital library card, which gives them access to over 14,000 digital books, magazines, movies and more.
