The Lafayette Public Library honored individuals and groups today at its 23rd annual awards luncheon at City Club at River Ranch.
The awards honor those who have made lasting contributions to the public library system.
Lafayette public library past president Joan Wingate say the award ceremony aims to give recognition to the libraries many supporters.
“These are silent supporters. They do the work, they have a passion for our libraries. So, it is important to give them recognition. But, to be honest, they would do the work without the recognition, and that’s the beauty of the support they give to our libraries.”
Among those honored today were the Surrey Street Community Health Center and the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s office.
