Unknown font from library plaque - unsure of date

This is a recognition plaque that is displayed in a local library. I'm trying to find out the font style for the text. It appears to be from the fifties or sixties, but I have no information about the date the plaque was put up.

Optima

Letterforms seem to match Optima, perhaps compressed a little http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/optima/
