Volunteers Honored by Board of Trustees

The Fairfax County Public Library Board of Trustees honored 38 volunteers and one community partner at a special awards ceremony April 11 at George Mason Regional Library. Three volunteer categories earning special recognition include volunteers who have reached service milestones, volunteers who have provided exceptional service by spearheading outstanding projects and community service partners. Delegate Mark Sickles served as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies.

Individual and corporate volunteers donated more than 155,000 hours of work for the library in fiscal year 2011 and made a significant impact in the ability of the library to serve the community. Volunteers check in books; provide tutoring; conduct programs; keep books in order with the “adopt-a-shelf” project; provide landscaping; and, contribute to many other valuable projects.

“In recent years as the library has faced budget cuts, reduced staff and reduced hours, volunteers have become even more important,” said Susan Thorniley, Chairman of the Fairfax County Public Library Board of Trustees. “Because of their dedication, we can continue to offer quality library service to Fairfax County residents.”
