york volunteer award

The Friends of the York County Library recently announced that Faye Wyatt is the 2015 recipient of the Joann W. McMaster Volunteer of the Year award at a reception to honor Friends of the Library volunteers. The award is named in honor of Joann McMaster, who helped found the Friends of the York County Library organization in 1975 and served as its first president.  This year marks the 40th anniversary for the Friends organization.

A Friends of the Library volunteer for more than five years, Faye has served as a Friends of the Library board member and volunteers on a weekly basis at the library.  She has logged over 400 volunteer hours in 2015.

The Friends also recognized nearly 100 volunteers, who donated over 3,600 hours on behalf of York County Libraries in 2015.  The Friends of the Library hold used book sales and other events to raise funds for library programs. They are the major sponsor of the summer reading programs for all ages and other library needs not provided for in the library budget.
