In 2007 the Board of FONCPL decided to institute an award to recognize the volunteer work of individual Friends. Since all Friends are volunteers one award did not seem adequate. It seemed good use of FONCPL resources to recognize five volunteers - one from each of the Areas across the state. The nominations are judged by a committee of peer Friends.  Those chosen are recognized at FONCPL annual meeting and recognition luncheon with a certificate and a $300 check for his/her local Friends group.

In 2011, following the retirement of Frannie Ashburn, the long-time State Library liaison to FONCPL, the Board of FONCPL voted to name the Volunteer of the Year Award in her honor. She had been the leading force in encouraging Friends volunteers across the state.

To recognize outstanding and dedicated service of Friends across our state.
