Annual Friends of Connecticut Libraries Awards 2020
The Friends of Connecticut Libraries is pleased to invite all of our Friends Groups to participate in our 2020 awards. This is an opportunity to recognize talented people in your Friends organization or the entire group and nominate them for one of the Friends of Connecticut Libraries Awards.
Did your Friends group try something new this year? Did they realize a major goal? Do you know of people who made things happen or provided extraordinary support to your Friends organization? It is a wonderful way to honor your members who work hard and effectively for your organization.
The awards will be presented at our annual meeting on June 13, 2020, at Middlesex Community College in Middletown. The winning Friends will receive this recognition in the company of people who understand and personify dedicated library service.
Do a service for your Friends Group and your library and tell us about their wonderful accomplishments. Let’s have lots of competition for these awards. Time is on your side - forms must be postmarked by April 20, 2020, but don’t set it aside too long. We can never thank our volunteers enough!
Follow the instructions on the Awards Form for submission. The completed form should be mailed as directed; please note that this year we are requesting that the summary (no more than 1,000 words) be submitted electronically in a word processing format.
If you have any questions regarding the awards, please do not hesitate to contact me at (203)525-5674 or write to me at
