The Central Library was in good company on Feb. 28, 2018 when it received an award from the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership for excellence in improving downtown. During the partnership's annual meeting Mayor Allen Joines presented the award to library director Sylvia Sprinkle Hamlin who thanked the community for embracing their 21st century library. The library was commended for its reuse of original steel beams as a framework for a modern design. Other recipients were The Arts for Arts Sake Group, Sweet Potatoes, Bookmarks, Wise Men Brewing, Benton Convention Center and Wake Downtown.
