At a recent ceremony at Meijer Gardens, the Kent District Library was recognized by the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce for Excellence in Business, beating out two prestigious finalists, Cascade Engineering, Inc. and Elzinga & Volkers, Inc. The Award was sponsored by Meijer, Inc. and was part of the Chamber's EPIC Awards ceremonies. EPIC stands for Entrepreneurial, Progressive, Innovative and Collaborative and the ceremony recognizes businesses and individuals that support the community, demonstrate growth, are innovative, and have worked with others as mentors and collaborators.
