Winter 2011 issue of Trustee
The members of the Onondaga County Public Library (OCPL) Advisory Council named Elizabeth (Betsy) Weinstein Shahan as the 2010 OCPL Trustee of the Year. The announcement was made at the Advisory Council’s October meeting. Adria Ripka, Vice President of the OCPL Advisory Council, presented the award to Ms. Weinstein at the Tully Free Library board meeting in November.
Ms. Weinstein was recognized for her many contributions during her seven years on the Tully Free Library Board. After joining the board in 2004, Betsy served on the Capital Campaign committee with a goal of raising $450,000.00. She became the official wordsmith for the library’s renovation project contributing articles to local newspapers and creating brochures for outreach to educate the community on the library’s goals. An accomplished writer, Betsy also and has taken on the herculean task of grant writing. Her grant efforts have resulted in support for the capital campaign, follow up projects and facility upgrades. Betsy has also served as vice president and is presently secretary of the Tully Free Library Board.
Both Betsy and the library received a plaque recognizing her accomplishments as well as a check for $250.00 that will be used to buy library materials of her choice. Congratulations, Betsy!
