Sno-Isle celebrates its volunteers | KUDOS

Volunteers who lend a hand at Whidbey Island libraries were honored along with their counterparts from other Sno-Isle branches as the library district recognized 43 people who have earned the President’s Volunteer Service Award at a ceremony and celebration earlier this week in Marysville.

The awards were made for service in 2010, and the winners were honored at a ceremony held at the Sno-Isle Libraries Service Center in Marysville on Monday, April 11. National Volunteer Week is April 10-16.

The list of honored volunteers includes:

Bronze Level: Erica Eden (Freeland Library), Julie Jordan (Freeland Library), Suzanne Ashworth (Coupeville Library), Lindsey Linville (Oak Harbor Library) and Diwata Tubo (Oak Harbor Library).

Silver Level: Jordan Snow (Freeland Library).

Gold Level: Christina Hilkey (Coupeville Library).

The library system currently has more than 700 volunteers who perform work around the district cleaning books, creating displays, keeping shelves in alpha-numerical order, searching shelves for missing materials, restocking supplies, helping plan events and programs, and working on many more short- and long-term projects.

District officials also say volunteers outnumber library staff by 40 percent.

Sno-Isle Libraries serves 671,000 residents in Island and Snohomish counties.
