From the library’s nomination: “We cannot think of anyone who has brought more smiles, more frequently, to so many people (all ages included!) within the last 6 months than the staff and volunteers at the library.”
Library staff and volunteers will be formally recognized at the regular meeting of council on October 26.
“As Mayor, it is particularly gratifying to recognize those in our community who contribute without the expectation of reward. The library’s staff and volunteers enhance and enrich our community as a whole and I am proud to congratulate them on this honour,” said Mayor Ange Qualizza.
In addition to the award, the City of Fernie will make a donation to the Fernie Food Bank on behalf if the library.
