WOODLAND PARK, NJ – Alfred Baumann Library Director Linda Hoffman opened up its annual recognition ceremony last night by stating that anyone who comes into the library is treated equal. She also said that having this library in the town is one of the best investments, because it is for everyone.

“We cannot have this success without the support of the community,” she said. “I would like to thank Maureen Mulroony (Board of Trustee president) and the rest of the board of trustees."

Among the honorees were Mayor Keith Kazmark and the Woodland Park Borough Council.

“I recognize a lot of familiar faces here who made this library a success,” he told the audience. “I would like to thank all the library workers and everyone who volunteers.”

Girl Scout Troop 411 was presented with certificates for their efforts in beautification of the library grounds.

“The scouts helped with planting around the building,” Hoffman said. The girls also place various holiday decorations outside throughout the year.

For showing her selfishness and spirit, Shea Lulla was presented with the “Teen Patron of the Year.”

Hoffman presented Heather Cherrey with the “Patron of the Year,” telling a story of how on her second day of moving to Woodland Park, many years ago, Cherrey visited the library to get her card, but didn’t have proof of residence, but the library gave her one anyway.

Cherrey, according to Hoffman, is a frequent visitor of the library as is Frances Kientz who was award “Library Advocate of the Year.”

Also present to receive awards were the principals from the three schools as well as Superintendent Dr. Michele Pillari and Superintendent of Passaic Valley High School Dr. Joann Cardillo, for their work and support in the town.

The Fitzgerald family received the “Family of the Year” award and Lena Preziosi was awarded “Junior Patron of the Year.”
