President's Volunteer Service Award

President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA)

The Mammen Family Public Library is now certified as one of the organizations qualified to track and grant the President’s Volunteer Service Award (PVSA). The PVSA is an award led by AmeriCorps and managed by AmeriCorps and Points of Light. It was created to honor and recognize the volunteers that go above and beyond and give lots of their time. There are yearly awards (tracked by calendar year – Jan. through Dec.) as well as lifetime awards.
