Volunteer Highlights

The Friends of the Dexter District Library applaud all our volunteers for their efforts in support of the Library.  We have two different programs recognizing Friends’ efforts.

We celebrate our Friends through a Recognition Program that acknowledges those who have donated their time through levels of volunteer hours.  Friends contributing 50 hours receive bronze pins, at 100 hours volunteers receive silver pins and at the 250 hour level, volunteers receive gold pins, noting their service.  Recipients are sent a commendation letter from the President of the Friends with their pins.  Since the inception of the program, individual Friends achievements are highlighted below.

Yearly we also vote for and announce the “Volunteer of the Year.”  This individual has made significant contributions of time and effort as a Friend of the Library.  The Volunteer of the Year’s name is added to a plaque that hangs in the Friends’ room at the Library.

Without our many volunteers, we could not support the Dexter Library as we do.  Thank you to one and all.

Volunteer of the Year Award

Each year, the members of the Friends of the Library Board nominate individual volunteers for a special tribute.  The volunteer of the year has made significant contributions of time and effort as a Friend of the Library.   Voting by the Board takes place at the annual meeting in December, to which all Friends are invited.  All volunteers are eligible for nomination.  The Volunteer of the Year’s name is added to a plaque that hangs in the Friends’ room at the Library.  Without our many volunteers, we could not support the Dexter Library as we do.  Thank you one and all.   The Friends of the Library has honored the following volunteers for their outstanding service during a specific year as well as achievements over time.
