The President’s Volunteer Service Award was presented to 49 Sno-Isle Libraries volunteers for service in the 2011 calendar year including Clinton residents Nora McGee and Gail Lajo.

The bronze award is presented to adults who clock in between 100 and 249 hours per year.

The volunteers were honored at a ceremony and celebration held at the Sno-Isle Libraries Service Center in Marysville on April 14, which kicked off National Volunteer Week.

Qualifying volunteers come from all around the Sno-Isle district.

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

McGee is a volunteer at the Clinton, Freeland  and Library libraries. Lajo has been a Freeland Library volunteer since 2006.
