Jean Lamb Wins Friendly Honor
Tustin Octogenarian Jean Lamb is the 2000 recipient of the Annual Best Friend Award presented by the Orange County Public Library to honor outstanding service by an individual on behalf of libraries.

Involved with the Friends of the Tustin Library since 1975, Lamb was honored on June 8 by the Orange County Public Library at its 20th Annual Friends of the Library Recognition Tea, held at the Aliso Viejo Branch Library.

Tustin Branch Manager Emily Moore, who nominated Lamb for the award, noted, "Jean has served as the her group's president and secretary, as well as a volunteer in the Tustin Friend's of the Library Bookstore. She is also an ardent supporter of children's services, and regularly lobbies the Tustin Area Women's Club for donations for the children's department."

"It is due to Jean's hard work and unstinting loyalty to the Tustin Library that the Friends has been, and continues to be, a successful organization," Moore added.


Best Friend judge Jane Dawson, Volunteer & Intern Program Manager for the County of Orange, noted, "Jean is a wonderful inspiration to others! The contributions she's made during her 25 years of service with the Friends of the Tustin Library demonstrate the very important role that volunteers play within our communities."

Andrea Martin, South County Field Representative for the Read/Orange County Literacy Program, and Best Friend judge, said, "Jean is most definitely the Best Friend because she has been true to her commitment as a Friend, not just by raising funds, purchasing library resources, and working in the bookstore, but by putting in an enormous effort, year after year."

During the presentation, Lamb was given an engraved clock by the Orange County Public Library, and 5th District Orange County Supervisor Tom Wilson presented Lamb with a special commemorative plaque from the County of Orange.
