Prague – Today, the Minister of Culture Lubomír Zaorálek will present the awards to the best domestic librarians in the Klementinum in Prague. After a break caused by the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s annual ceremony returns to the Mirror Chapel on the National Library.

The award has been given to libraries and librarians by the Minister of Culture since 2003. The award in the basic library category is intended primarily for libraries in small municipalities where volunteer librarians work, as an expression of public recognition for this work.

The prize in the category of a significant achievement in the field of providing public library and information services is received by the library operator or its employee. In both categories, the prize is associated with a reward of 70,000 crowns.

The Halenkov Library from the Zlín Region became the library of 2020. The main prize in the category of information work was then won by the Municipal Library in Prague for the CENTRAL project as a fast central cataloging service.

There are about 5,500 libraries in the Czech Republic and several hundred of their branches. It is the densest network worldwide. According to statistics from the Library Institute in the Czech Republic, half of children and a third of adults go to the library.
