County Executive Matt Meyer Receives 2021 Distinguished Service Citation​

The Delaware Library Association awarded Matt Meyer its top honor in recognition of his strong support of Delaware libraries. Said Annie Norman, Delaware State Librarian. “County Executive Meyer is an effective collaborator and appreciates libraries’ leadership role in the social infrastructure for the benefit of Delawareans.”


The press announcement stated: “The Census Bureau's 2018 American Community Survey (ACS) estimated, almost 10% of households in Delaware did not have any internet service. Recognizing the pandemic made the digital divide in the community more acute, the County Executive’s office worked with libraries to increase access. In addition to creating new hotspot locations, the county collaborated with the Delaware Division of Libraries to extend WiFi access to the libraries’ parking lots and purchased 100 Chromebooks to distribute to patrons. These actions helped provide digital access to the hardest to reach communities.”
