Rhode Island Librarian is “Librarian of the Year”

School librarian Lisa Mutter-Gendreau displays her award as Reader To Reader’s Librarian of the Year for 2009.

Ms. Mutter-Gendreau was chosen from the over 400 librarians that participate in the Reader To Reader program for her outstanding service to the students of Henry J. Winters Elementary in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

“Lisa Mutter-Gendreau has worked very hard to make her school library a wonderful place for all her students,” notes Reader To Reader executive director David Mazor. “She is always looking for resources that she can add and is an inspiration to everyone that cares about literacy.”

“Our library at Henry J. Winters Elementary School has grown tremendously due to generous contributions made by Reader To Reader. My students are so excited about all the new titles we have added to our shelves,” Mutter-Gendreau says. “Organizations like Reader To Reader make it possible for schools operating with little or no budget to continuously expand their school libraries. Your donations have made my students enthusiastic about reading. And that is fantastic! My sincere thanks to all of you for making this happen.”

We offer our heartfelt congratulations to Lisa Mutter-Gendreau and are pleased to recognize her with this award.
