  The 2003 Jane Geske Award was presented to the Grand Island Public Library and the Grand Island Public Library Foundation, Inc. at the annual meeting of the Nebraska Center for the Book on November 2, 2003 in Lincoln. The library and foundation were honored for their rich tradition of service (120 years in 2004), their outreach throughout Hall County, and the variety of reading and literacy services provided.

The purpose of the Jane Geske Award is to recognize a Nebraska association, organization, business, library, school, academic institution, or other group that has made an exceptional, long-term contribution to one or more of these fields in Nebraska: literacy, reading, book selling, books, libraries, and writing in Nebraska.
