At the annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon, funded by the Friends of the Library, we get an opportunity to express our thanks to our amazing volunteers. The luncheon is also a time for us to recognize volunteers for their many hours and years of service. Pictured above are some of the volunteers who received service awards for volunteering from 500 hours up to 14,500 hours and from 3 years to 30 years here at the library. Also pictured is our Volunteer of the Year, Mark Ostrand, who contributed 410 hours of service last year.
