The Imperial Beach Library honored volunteers at their Annual Volunteer Recognition Celebration in the newly opened library.  Every year the library honors their volunteers for their dedication and support of the library.   Special recognition was given by County Supervisor Cox, San Diego County Library Director Miguel Acosta, and The City of Imperial Beach Mayor Serge Dedina to Cynthia Banco, Volunteer of the Year, and Brittany Henn, Service Learner of the Year.


Cynthia Blanco has been volunteering at the Imperial Beach Library since January 2015.  She has donated her time for over 125 hours in 2016.  She faithfully comes every week to help with the holds lists and shelving.  She took a lead and helped organize our Fandom Costume Party & Santa Comes to IB. She is very fond of shelving, as it gives her chance to review materials in the library’s collection.  In her spare time she loves to bake cookies, practice Tai Chi, and, of course, read.


Brittany Henn is an Imperial Beach native. She started volunteering as a Service Learner in early 2016, and she donated over 220 hours of her time at the library.  Brittany is active in our Teen Advisor Group, Fandom Club, Teen Book Club, Family Movie Nights, Kid’s Discovery Craft, and organized and implemented the new GSA Club for teens at the library.  She is a natural mentor to other Service Learners new to volunteering.  Her favorite place in Imperial Beach is “hands down” the beach! 

Congratulations go out to Cynthia, Brittany, and all of the library volunteers.  They have made and continue to make a difference in helping the Imperial Beach community.
