PARSIPPANY — Parsippany’s library staff were treated to goodies on April 9th, for National Library Workers’ Day, compliments of the Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills.

Staff Members at Parsippany’s three libraries; Main Library, Mount Tabor Branch and Lake Hiawatha Branch were treated to home-made baked goods, candies and refreshments as a thank you for their dedication to the Parsippany library system.

National Library Workers’ Day was established in 2003 to ‘recognize the hard work, dedication, and expertise of library support staff and librarians.’

This is the fifth year WCPTH has supported National Library Workers’ Day. The club has a special relationship with the library, being one of its first donors in the 1960’s when the township library was established. The club has also partnered on projects with the library and made numerous donations to support the needs of the library.

Nationally, Women’s Clubs are credited with establishing three quarters of the nation’s libraries.

The Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills is a member of NJSFWC, which is the largest volunteer women’s service organization in the state, providing opportunities for education, leadership training, and community service. General Meetings are held the fourth Monday of each month from September to April at 7:00 p.m. at the Lake Parsippany Rescue & Recovery, 100 Centerton Drive.
