Dayton Metro Library was recently recognized by the Miami Valley Community Action Partnership with its Outstanding Partner award. Business Services Librarian Ann Riegle-Crichton accepted the award at a ceremony held Friday, May 25.
“We've been hosting the CAP ‘Getting Ahead’ classes at the Main Library since last fall,” said Riegle-Crichton. “I’m glad that we’re able to accommodate them from a workforce development standpoint, and help to provide this much-needed service to their class participants.”
“Getting Ahead in a Just Gettin’ By World” is a 16-week course that gives participants the tools to overcome poverty by building their resources for a more prosperous life for themselves, their families, and their communities. LaVar Glover, Self-Sufficiency Director for CAP, is co-facilitator.
“The Library has been a wonderful resource for our Getting Ahead program,” said Glover. “On behalf of Miami Valley Community Action Partnership, I want to say thank you for all that you have done for our community. We appreciate your service.”
Riegle-Crichton also recently accepted the Dayton Chamber of Commerce Volunteer of the Quarter award, for being an active Chamber supporter and offering numerous partnership opportunities that support the business community at large.
