Westlake resident Deb Myers received the 2019 Myrna Chelko Volunteer Award from Westlake Porter Public Library at a volunteer recognition event on March 31.
A Reception Desk volunteer since 2002, Myers is one of the first “faces of the library” that visitors see when entering the building. Because of her longevity as a volunteer, Myers is known for her knowledge about the library and her resulting ability to assist patrons. She also volunteers for the Friends of Porter Public Library’s annual Big Book Sale as well as at the Ice Cream Social. She has given close to 2500 hours of service to the library.
Myrna Chelko was a long-time library volunteer who was known for her dedication to the library and her hard work. She helped found the Friends of Porter Public Library and her many volunteer services include being an officer of that group and a Library Board member. Myrna exemplified the volunteer spirit, which is why the award was created in her name.
