ISLAND FREE LIBRARY STAFF receives Island Treasure Award

Due to Covid 19, the Board of the Block Island Residents Association annual meeting was held virtually this year via Zoom. In what has become an annual event, the Board was pleased to award the 2020 Island Treasure Award to the Island Free Library Staff. A brief video of the presentation was shown.

In presenting this year’s award, BIRA Treasurer, Donna Corey read from member, Linda Spak’s nomination:
“During a very difficult year, these dedicated people came to the rescue by providing programming for all age groups. From delivering books and surprise packages to the clients at Helping Hands Food Pantry, reading to adults every day remotely, children’s wonderful and engaging music program and craft projects to then slowing and carefully opening up more services while always keeping the staff and community’s safety the top priority, they have been stars. These are just a small example of their dedication and hard work.
Please acknowledge this hard work and creativity by municipal employees by awarding them the Island Treasure Award.
