The attendees enjoyed a scrumptious spread titled "A World of Books - A World of Food" provided by Jason Evans and his staff. Library trustees and volunteers once again outdid themselves with a great dessert buffet. Matt Witten of the duo "Swing Peepers" provided entertainment for the kids, quite a few adults seemed to enjoy his silly humor and musical talent as well.
The Sponsor-A-Book program was well received and many attendees donated the funds needed to purchase the books on our wish list AND have a specially inscribed nameplate in a book of their choosing. Displays promoting library programs were viewed, including information on "Teen Night" and the upcoming Pittsfield "Photo Contest". And of course the Susie Martin "Volunteer of the Year" was announced. Marion Abrams, RCML trustee chair, and the person most responsible for breathing life back into what was a dying library, was the logical choice. The trick was to keep it a secret, which was accomplished! She was presented with a plaque, tiara and scepter...Congratulations Marion!!!
From all of the volunteers at RCML, we thank all who support and patronize the library, it is truly a community effort.
