Regardless of size or developmental level, all NSLMPY winners spoke about the need for school libraries to be a gathering place or center for the entire learning community.
In general, there was across the board interest among NSLMPY winners in doing what was best for students and assisting in student/learner quests for effective and valid information while keeping open the possibilities of effective learning regardless of student/learner status.
The schools that won the NSLMPY award all had excellent programs that extended their worth into the worlds of others in and around the school.
The majority of NSLMPY schools paid attention to their missions and visions for their students and staff.
The NSLMPY winners took rime to analyze their collaborations and improve upon them, enlisting others to critically review the work and the progress made by learners.
So, we congratulate the 2005 to the present NSLMPY winners.
