The Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library knows that people are its backbone. That includes the many families that see the library as their community hub.  In recognition of this appreciation, the Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library has instituted an annual “Family of the Year” award which honours a family in the community for its interest in, use of, and support of the Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library.

Each year the recipient is an individual or a family who makes use of the resources that the Library has to offer and who appreciates and benefits from its services. The recipient of the “Family of the Year” award for 2017 is Julie MacLeod.

Originally from England, MacLeod has been an avid library user visiting the library almost daily to take advantage of library resources. She has used the library computers to prepare for the Canadian Citizenship examination and to successfully find employment. She is a vocal supporter of the Library and a staunch advocate of its critical role in the community.

MacLeod was presented with the award at the Library’s monthly Board meeting on Thursday evening, November 2nd. The “Family of the Year” plaque and photo may be seen at the Library on the wall behind the circulation desk.
