This wonderful news arrived today from Washington Library Association via Brian Hulsey:
“Thank you for submitting the nomination of the Friends of the South Whatcom Library for the WLA Friends/Foundation Merit Award. We had several deserving Friends/Foundation groups nominated and it is with great pleasure that I inform you your group will be the recipient of an Award. Your Friends showed amazing perseverance and dedication as they “worked diligently for three years to raise $365,000” toward a new library building. WLA is proud to honor their “unwavering passion for libraries” and their “positivity and resilience in the face of setbacks”.
We are so honored, and grateful to Brian and all the staff of the Whatcom County Library System for their trust and support!
