Our Volunteer Reception Award Winners!
The Jefferson County Library Foundation hosted its annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon on Saturday, April 12th at the Lakewood Cultural Center. Volunteers gathered for a catered lunch and awards presentation, followed by a showing of Hairspray.
In an effort to show appreciation for the hard work and dedication of our amazing team of volunteers, JCPL and the Foundation presented three awards at the Recognition Event that are given annually to individuals that have impacted the libraries with their service.
The JCPL Leadership Award, recognizing a volunteer who embodies a spirit of selfless dedication and commitment to Jefferson County Public Library, was presented to Kirstin Kraig a longtime volunteer at the Foundation and Standley Lake Library. Kirstin is our book donation guru for the library; she is the go-to person to sort, box, and price vintage aged materials in our donation room at Standley Lake. She also spends countless hours at the Foundation to sort, train volunteers, and help as needed.
Sandy Kramer, a dedicated Foundation volunteer, was given the Volunteer of the Year award, recognizing a volunteer whose contributions of time and talent over the past year have had a positive impact on the quality of programs at Jefferson County Public Library. Not only does Sandy dedicate eight hours every Monday to sort and box books at our warehouse, but she volunteers all six days of our Whale Sales to ensure each event runs smoothly and successfully!
The Elena Joyce Grissom Lifetime Service Award, recognizing a volunteer whose enduring contributions of time and talent have had a significant impact at JCPL and JCLF, was awarded to Kay Stafford, a volunteer who has worked tirelessly as a library advocate and has been responsible for shaping the Jefferson County Library Foundation into what it is today.
Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers for making a difference in the library!
