Erin Hart Named 2021 Library Ambassador of the Year
As part of National Library Week, Missouri River Regional Library will honor Erin Hart from KAT Country as the 2021 Library Ambassador of the Year. Hart is an avid library user, and consistently shares about the work the library is doing, both in the community and on social media. She has volunteered as a celebrity reader, is a frequent Book Box participant, and writes blogs often on her experiences at the library.
"We can always count on Erin to share with her audience about the library and our offerings,” said Claudia Cook, Director. “Erin has been a long time supporter of the library, and we especially appreciate her ongoing support of Book Box since it began two years ago. Her social media posts and blogs have helped spread the word on this groundbreaking initiative. She has raised the profile of the Library throughout our community in new and innovative ways."
Previous award recipients include Stu Murphy (2020), Debbie Rowles (2019), and Kit Freudenberg (2018).
