The Ghana Library Authority has been shortlisted for the London Book Fair (LBF) International Excellence Awards 2021 in the ‘The Library of the Year Award’ category alongside Kenya National Library Services (Kenya) and Public Library Koprivnica (Croatia).

The award is being organised by the London Book Fair in partnership with the Publishers Association (United Kingdom) to celebrate publishing achievement across seven categories, recognising organisations and individuals who have demonstrated originality, creativity, and innovation within the industry.

“As a result, we are working tirelessly with major stakeholders and this recognition is a testament to the extraordinary support received so far towards achieving the vision,” he added.

Mr Andy Ventris, Director of the London Book Fair, in the release, said: “It is so inspiring to see the incredible work being done by the LBF International Excellence Awards 2021 shortlistees in a year, which has challenged every facet of the publishing industry. Facing unprecedented obstacles with determination and creativity, these fifteen entries demonstrate the passion that powers the publishing industry all around the globe.

“Books have been a special haven for so many of us in recent times, and we are honoured to celebrate the role our shortlistees have played in bringing reading and knowledge to their communities and beyond.
