2021 WNYLRC Outstanding Library Program Award
Congratulations to Librarian Christine for being awarded the 2021 WNYLRC Outstanding Library Program Award for her Butterfly Garden Program.

Christine organized the garden's creation, held a plant swap, and coordinated a partnership with Audubon Community Nature Center to make this idea a success!

"I am honored to be lauded for this project, but I would be remiss if I did not thank the rest of the Prendergast staff and the Jamestown Audubon Society for their active and fervent support and work on this program as a whole." - Christine.
