Gale, part of Cengage Learning , has announced the winners of its Libraries Are Beautiful: Inside and Out photo contest. The contest was launched in celebration of National Library Week, and the winners represent big cities, small towns, and all types of libraries across the nation. There were over 800 submissions, with over 30,000 votes cast. The top five per category were chosen by experts in art, architecture, and design. From the 25 finalists, winners were chosen by popular vote. Our own James J. Hill Reference Library in St. Paul, MN won in the Greatest Historical Treasure category. If you have never seen it, it is worth the trip to St. Paul.
