HONORING OUR LOCAL LIBRARY STAFF

Local libraries provide our communities with invaluable programs and resources for individuals of all ages, including books, workshops, film screenings, author events, classes, job training and more. Those services are made possible by the dedicated library workers who create, organize and run them.

Last month during National Library Week, I asked library directors from the 7th Senate District to nominate a library worker to be recognized for their outstanding work.  I recently had the pleasure of giving out formal New York State Proclamations to each of the hardworking staff members who keep our libraries running.

Thank you to all of the directors and congratulations to all of the honorees – you have truly made libraries the bedrock of our communities.

The honorees were Vivian Gong, of the Mineola Memorial Library; Deepa Chandra, of the Bryant Library; Edna Harpaul, of the Westbury Public Library; Muriel Alt, of the East Williston Public Library; Edward Escoffier, of the Hicksville Public Library; and Kathy Kane, of the Williston Park Public Library. Jonathan Aubrey, of the Great Neck Public Library, was honored posthumously, and his brother, David, accepted the Proclamation on his behalf.
