Eighth annual volunteer breakfast 2015

Everyone, Staff and Volunteers, who attended our volunteer, Friends, gardeners, and  Board members, breakfast this morning should receive high kudos for tenacity and commitment. The formidable weather forecast held many in the state at bay, closing schools and many community activities. However, these dire predictions did not thwart our sturdy band of faithful volunteers who help our libraries succeed every day.  I was honored to be able to present our volunteer of the year award to Michael Scully this year.  Michael is an inspiration to all of us; the kind of person we all strive to be, generous with his smile, laughter and good spirit. He does it all because he loves the libraries and the libraries love him back. Congratulations Michael, well done.

Farmington’s libraries and community are special place in the world and a special place in my heart; it's just a great place to be. 

Cheers and keep warm.  

Best, Jay
