Library Volunteers Keiko Matsuura and Bob Baker Honored Today

Bernardsville residents, Bob Baker and Keiko Matsuura, were recognized for their outstanding volunteer service to Bernardsville Public Library at a reception held on the library's patio this afternoon. 

The Board of Trustees organized this event which included refreshments, speeches and awards. Board members, staff and friends were in attendance to show their appreciation.

Bob has given many hours of service to the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program he manages at the library. VITA provides free assistance with income tax preparation for people with low or moderate incomes.  He also provides free computer instruction at the library.  Keiko has brightened the library with her artistic talents over the last four years. As a Youth Services volunteer, she has given origami classes and programs on Japanese culture to our patrons.  Keiko is also the creator of our wonderful summer reading displays including this year's creative pigs and last year's summer reading bugs.  We truly appreciate all the dedication and time that Bob, Keiko and our many other wonderful volunteers have offered to the library.
