Pueblo library reaches "final four" in national competition

Posted: Updated:

Pueblo has made the "final four" in a contest for the best library in the country.

The Pueblo City-County Library District was one of 116 nominations submitted for the Leslie Knope Award for Best Public Library--put on by an organization called Engaging Local Government Leaders.

Pueblo must now beat Lawrence, Kansas to advance to the finals.

"We're 400 votes behind Lawrence, Kansas but we know we can catch up because we know as the word gets out there on the streets that more people are going to want to vote for Pueblo," said Jon Walker, Executive Director of the Pueblo City-County Library District.

The award is named after a fictitious character in the NBC sitcom "Parks and Rec," which was on air between 2009 and 2015.

Last week, Pueblo beat out State College, Pa. in the Elite 8.

They are now facing off against Lawrence, Kan. this week for a shot at the Championship Round.
