Library receives national award


GREENE COUNTY — The web content manager at Greene County Public Library recently received national recognition from the American Library Association.

Maya Stutzman won the national award for her video promoting the library’s Food for Fines program.

The video, “Food for Fines,” won in the special programs/ exhibits category for the PR Xchange Awards, which recognize the very best public relations materials produced by libraries in the last year. Over 390 entries in print and electronic formats were submitted from over 100 institutions, including public, academic, school, state, and special libraries.

Winning awards is not new for Stutzman, who won two awards for her video work last year. She received her award during the official proceedings of the American Library Association’s annual conference in Chicago June 25.

“Maya is an essential part of the library’s communications team,” said Karl Colón, executive director of the library. “Her video work demonstrates effective communication. It is succinct, clear, and fun.”
