2015 Star Volunteer Awards

The Fairfax County Public Library Board of Trustee’s 2015 Star Volunteer Awards were held on Wednesday, April 8 at George Mason Regional Library. Delegate Mark Sickles, 43rd District, Virginia House of Delegates, served as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies.

Delegate Sickles presented awards to 46 volunteers who have reached service milestones of 1,000 up to 12,500 hours and volunteers who have provided exceptional service.

“This annual tribute to the library’s volunteers—one of our most valuable resources—is a favorite event for the entire Board each spring,” said Delegate Sickles. “Tonight we will be honoring volunteers who perform many of the behind-the-scene tasks that keep libraries running smoothly, whether it is pulling the books people have reserved, keeping shelves in order, working with customers, teaching computer skills, leading English language learning groups, moderating book groups, gardening and so much more.”

In calendar year 2015, volunteers dedicated over 120,000 hours to the library.
