Volunteers thanked for supporting our award-winning libraries
Volunteers dedicated more than 35,000 hours of their time during the last year to support Merton’s award-winning library service and were invited to an event at the Civic Centre in Morden on Thursday 10th November. Certificates of recognition and awards were presented by the Mayor of Merton, Councillor Brenda Fraser, the Cabinet Member for Community and Culture, Councillor Nick Draper and Khadiru Mahdi, Chief Executive of Merton Voluntary Service Council.
Janina Craske, who won the Outstanding Contribution Award said: “I have always loved books and reading and libraries. I enjoy volunteering at Raynes Park Library because it makes me feel part of the community.”
