Jim Terwilliger, a Wood Library Trustee since 2007, received the Pioneer Library System’s Trustee of the Year Award at its annual dinner on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, at Bristol Harbor Inn and Resort.

Jim has been a steady voice for fiscal responsibility and stable financing for Wood Library.  As Treasurer and Finance Committee Chair he has carefully monitored the library’s operational budget, recommended financial policies to support the library’s organizational priorities, and guided the library through a major capital fundraising campaign.  Jim also led a committee of library advocates and trustees to develop and implement a long-term plan for community-based funding for Wood Library.  He is a role model trustee, giving time and treasure beyond expectations.

Jim’s dedication to Wood Library and leadership as a trustee has helped to secure Wood Library’s future as an essential community asset.

Wood Library is a member of the Pioneer Library System, a collaborative partnership between 42 libraries in Ontario, Wayne, Wyoming, and Livingston counties.

Thanks Jim for your continued commitment to Wood Library, for your advocacy and leadership, and for sharing your wisdom.
