On Saturday, April 6, Harsimar Singh, Circulation Supervisor at the North Natomas Library
and Karen Thomas, North Natomas Affiliate Friends President and Sacramento Public Library Friends Board Member, were honored as nominees for an N Factor award for Distinguished Community Service.
The N Factor Awards
are presented annually by District 1 City Council member and Vice-Mayor Angelique Ashby and recognize Natomas residents and business people who provide outstanding service to the Natomas community.
As the President of the North Natomas Library Affiliate Friends of the Library
group, Karen helped start the Friends of the Library store, located in the North Natomas Library lobby. The store is operated by Friends and sells donated books, magazines, and other materials. Since opening the store in January of 2010, the store has raised almost $60,000 for the library.
Harsimar Singh demonstrates his talent and dedication to service in many ways, but in particular, he has helped scores of people who come to the library with questions about eReaders. Whether it’s an iPad, a Nook, a Kindle, or a smart phone, Harsimar patiently walks customers through the process of getting library eBooks on an eReader device.
