Our award for volunteerism is named for a dear friend of the library, Pamela Gay. For over a decade, Pam spent Fridays at the library performing a variety of tasks. She was an active member of the Friends of the Library, editing two cookbooks, chairing two festivals, organizing many trips to the Boston Pops and delivering her delicious food to library programs, receptions and dinners. In her honor, the Trustees created a recognition program for library volunteers. Each December at a volunteer tea, the trustees award the annual Pamela Gay Award for Volunteerism.
