Lynnwood Library volunteer presented with Gold Level Presidential Service Award

Lynnwood Library volunteer Jessie Larson was recently presented with a Gold Level Presidential Service Award for the volunteer work she completed in 2012 for Sno-Isle Libraries.

Larson received a gold pin and congratulatory letters from President Barack Obama and Sno-Isle Libraries Executive Directory Jonalyn Woolf-Ivory at an awards ceremony last month.

Larson was recognized for her 756 hours volunteering for the library district. She volunteered five-days-a-week at the Lynnwood Library, commuting between the library and her Mountlake Terrace home by bus.

Her commitment to the work of the Lynnwood Library hasn’t been seen in just a one-year span of time. Larson volunteered at the library 280 hours in 2010 and 407 hours in 2011; she had been recognized previously for her loyalty those years with Silver Level awards.

Larson was one of six to be honored at the district’s award ceremony. In addition to Larson’s Gold Level award, Silver Level awards were presented to Tony Caruso for work at the Mountlake Terrace Library, Sasha Penco at the Lynnwood Library, Riley Doolen at the Marysville Library, Sharon Bilbro at the Snohomish Library and Linda Suby at the district’s Service Center in Marysville.

“Our volunteers make an incredible difference in contributing their time, talents and skills to the library,” said Woolf-Ivory. “Their work is so quintessential American. They strengthen our efforts and services to customers and communities for reading, resources and lifelong learning.”
