Park Ridge Library Honors Longtime Volunteers

Jan Van De Carr presents award to Dee and Val Derer
You may recognize long-time Park Ridge residents Val Derer and his wife Dee as frequent Library visitors. But they do more than spend time at the Library-- they volunteer. 

Recognizing that the library was a valuable resource for the community, Dee started volunteering her time about ten years ago and Val came on board two years later. They may be found arranging tables or sorting the collections of donated books which frequently arrive toward the semi-annual Friends of the Park Ridge Library book sales.

"The two contribute many hours, and do all sorts of work in the building," says Library Director Janet Van De Carr. "We appreciate what they do in all departments," added Van De Carr.

"They understand the need for sorting," pointed out Dorothy and Dick DuSold from the Friends, who nominated the Derers. "They’re a great team to work with."
