JoAnn Brandt & Sylvia Clark Awarded Ruby Assaf Presidential Award

 The Ruby Assaf Presidential Award honors an outstanding individual volunteer(s) in the Friends of the Mississippi Libraries or in a local Friends chapter.

JoAnn & Sylvia have served as officers and tireless library supporters since 1984 until retiring in 2016. During their over thirty-year tenure, they, along with many other friends members, raised over $256,000 to fund badly needed items for the library that cannot be provided by county and city funding.

The award ceremony was held at the 2016 Mississippi Library Association Annual Conference in Vicksburg, MS on Friday October 21 at the  MLS Awards Breakfast.
