Library Family of the Year announced

ORANGE — The American Association of University Women (AAUW) presented the Garmon family of Orange with their annual Library Family of the Year award at the Orange Public Library Saturday morning. Jeff and Tammy Garmon with their three children Patrick, Aidan, and Emma love to read on lots of different subjects. The Garmons home school their three children and will frequently leave the library with as many 50 books a week. They know all the librarians by name and started going to the library when their children were very young because it was free which became a habit. Janelle Ramsey of AAUW presented the Garmons with a plaque signifying them as the Library Family of the Year and a $25 gift certificate to a local book store. The AAUW has awarded a Library Family of the Year for over 20 years, and plaques listing the names of each family is kept at the library.
