BATAVIA — The Tale for Three Counties program has been named the 2012 Richmond Library Friend of the Year. This program will be honored at a public reception held in the Gallery Room of the Richmond Library at 3:30 p.m. Friday, April 13.
The annual award, which is sponsored by the Friends of the Richmond Memorial Library, recognizes an individual or group whose interest and support of the Library has been exceptional. Consideration is given to people who generously give of their time and talent to help with library-sponsored programs, or who have worked toward promoting the mission of the Library within the community.
Dianne Boeheim, President of the Friends, said, “Since the program’s debut in March of 2003, participants in Genesee, Orleans and Wyoming counties have been introduced to new authors, and the variety of books selected has broadened their reading horizons. The various discussions held at different locations in all three counties allowed readers to share perspectives.
Being able to listen to the author in person provides the perfect end to the program, as evidenced by the huge crowds of readers that attend. Tale for Three Counties touches readers, young, old and in-between. The program has grown in readership for 10 years and developed a following of passionate readers.”
Friends of the Richmond Memorial Library is a nonprofit organization that assists the Library with programs, public relations, and fund raising through its monthly book sales and membership drive. Information about membership in the organization may be obtained by calling the Library at (585) 343-9550, or by visiting the Library’s website, www.batavialibrary.org.
