The Fairfax County Public Library Board of Trustees honored 35 volunteers and one community partner at a special awards ceremony May 8 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 150,000 hours of work for the library in fiscal year 2012 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.

“We appreciate how valuable volunteers are, not only for the hours they contribute, but as library ambassadors in the communities we serve,” said Willard Jasper, chairman of the Fairfax County Public Library Board of Trustees. “They spread the word among family, neighbors and friends about the wide array of resources the Fairfax County Public Library provides.”
