Our family has been through 11 states in 106 days.
Living on-the-road is more stressful and more wonderful than we ever could have imagined. We’re meeting outstanding people, interviewing executive directors of non-profits, getting behind-the-scenes tours of businesses, and enjoying an ever-changing outdoor landscape.
I’m putting together an awards program of sorts as we travel. At the end of our 365 days, I’d like to zero in on THE BEST in specific categories.
Nominations will be accepted for:
- Best Library

Leave a comment on this post with your nominations. For example, you might write, “I nominate ABC County Library for Best Library because…”
If possible, include the city and state (plus, a website!). I’d also love to hear WHY you think your pick has what it takes to be the best in the USA. The more details you can provide, the more enticing your nomination will be.
No guarantees, of course – but we’ll try to stop in at as many places as we can along our route.
