The Friends of Preston Library awarded Cadet Chelsea Loy with this year’s Camper Award. Board members of the Friends, library staff, and Mrs. Camper’s son, Bob, recognized Ms. Loy for her leadership and service to Preston Library. Ms. Loy worked in Preston Library’s technical services department as a Library Cadet Assistant.
A brief ceremony was held in the library’s Periodical Room and Chairman of the Friends of Preston Library, Major Eric Osborne, recognized Cadet Loy. The award’s namesake, Mrs. Frances Camper was a great teacher and role model for library cadet assistants. Ms. Loy received a letter of recognition, a certificate, and a cash award.
