46 OCL volunteers to be feted during Nat’l Volunteer Week

TOMS RIVER –   Ocean County Library will honor 46 of its volunteers during National Volunteer Week, April 15 through April 21, with presentations held at local branches. 

Each volunteer will be recognized by the President’s Volunteer Service Award committee and presented with a small gift.  Some of those volunteers will be recognized for milestone achievements in hours of work donated to the library system.

Established in 1974, National Volunteer Week has grown each year, drawing the support and endorsement of subsequent U.S. presidents, governors, mayors and other elected officials.

National Volunteer Week is about inspiring, recognizing and encouraging people to seek out imaginative ways to engage in their communities. It is also about taking action, encouraging individuals and their respective communities to be at the center of social change, and actively demonstrating their collective power to foster positive transformation.

The sponsor of National Volunteer Week is the Points of Light Institute & Hands On Network. 

Presidential Volunteer Service Awards are presented with a specially designed pin and a certificate and letter signed by the President.

The awards will be presented to volunteers at the following branches: Barnegat; Berkeley; Brick; Jackson; Lacey; Lakewood; Little Egg Harbor; Long Beach Island; Plumsted; Point Pleasant Beach; Point Pleasant Borough; Toms River and Tuckerton.
