The Friends of Hanley Library received the University of Pittsburgh Library System “Friends of
ULS” Award during an in-service day for all librarians in the Pitt system held
earlier this month.
The award recognizes individuals or
groups who have made a contribution to a university library.
The Friends of Hanley Library formed
in 1990 and have actively supported the library on the Bradford campus since
its inception through fundraising and programs. Over the years, the Friends
have donated artwork, books, furnishings and equipment.
Their donations have benefited
students, faculty and staff by providing needed material to support the campus
curriculum and refresh library spaces to create inviting, comfortable areas for
research and study.
Additionally, the Friends’ sponsored
programs have brought community members to campus and contributed to positive
engagement between the campus and Bradford community.
Roger Peters, a member of the
Friends board, accepted the award. Other members of the board are President
Patricia Donahue, Mimi Cahill, Jeff Bosworth, Jim Guelfi, Anita Herbert, Molly
Heron, Betsy Matz, Ruth McDowell, Nancy Pascale, Roger Peters, Debbie Price,
Dr. Holly Spittler and Phyllis Sylvester.
