Claudia Visnich is the 2022 Missouri River Regional Library Library Volunteer of the Year for 2022.
MRRL will recognize Visnich at its annual MRRL Friends meeting 10 a.m. Saturday at the library.
Visnich has served as the MRRL Friends president the past two years and was an active member prior to that.
During her time in the MRRL Friends group, Visnich has volunteered to help at various library programs and many of the library's special events, including Summer Reading kick-off parties, Kids' Fest and National Library week's patron appreciation day. She is a monthly assistant at Friday Night films, welcoming patrons upon their arrival at the front doors.
"Visnich is a librarian herself and truly understands the importance of library programs and services in our community," MRRL Director Claudia Young said in a news release. "She cares about helping both staff and patrons, and has given a great deal of her time to make sure the library staff has the extra programming assistance they need from the MRRL Friends. Visnich is a very service-oriented person and someone the library can count on. And it is a pleasure to work with her on the MRRL Friends board."
