On Wednesday, Nov 8, the Friends of the Library group – and more than 100 people – honored one of Lewiston’s finest volunteers: Peggy Salada. Several members of the Salada family were in attendance to celebrate and honor this award with Peggy.

The committee had a very easy task this year in selecting a volunteer to be honored – nominations received for Peggy spoke of her commitment to the library, where she served for many years on the board. Peggy has been involved with the Lewiston Library since 1964, as board president and as an active member of the Friends.

Some of the comments about Peggy, the 2023 Volunteer of the Year, included, “Mrs. Salada has been a patron of the Lewiston Public Library for almost 60 years. She has been a board member and Friend of the Library and has shown an unparallel commitment to the library and all of its event.”

“Peggy has committed many years of her life and hundreds of hours to our library. Peggy’s passion for the library aligns perfectly with her love of books and reading.”

“Peggy has walked Center Street asking for donations. She has volunteered at book sales and other fundraising events.”

The beautiful praises go on and on about Peggy and her dedication to our library.

Congratulations, again, to Peggy for your volunteerism and commitment to our library.

The Volunteer of the Year program was initiated to honor Mamie Simonson, a wonderful and faithful volunteer for the Friends of the Library. Her son, Lee Simonson, generously donated the funds to start the Volunteer of the Year program in memory of his mother.

Each year, a volunteer is chosen from nominations received and is honored at the annual friendly gathering.
