Best Small Library in America

Baker & Taylor has been committed to empowering librarians to lead the future of literacy and learning since 1828.

Over the last 190 years we’ve been supporting our customer partners as the role of the community library has evolved. We know, regardless of community size, the library is one of the most valuable and needed community institutions.

Libraries that serve smaller and rural communities are innovators in reaching underserved communities, creatively addressing literacy gaps and supporting community programs.
