The Board of Trustees of the Hudson Library presented the Gertrude and Dolly Harbison Award to Highlands’ residents William C. Stiefel, Jr. and Rosemary Clark Stiefel at the Hudson Library’s bi-monthly meeting held on June 9.
The award, named for two early librarians at the Hudson Library, is the highest-service award given by the Board of Trustees.
As recited in the award certificate, Stiefel served many years as a member of the Board of Trustees, including multiple terms as President of the Board of Trustees.
Stiefel was also a faithful volunteer at both the Hudson Library and the Bookworm.
A noted and gifted artist, Rosemary Stiefel has for many years generously graced the Hudson Library with her own artwork and creativity, including her wonderful design of the logo of the Hudson Library, which is used in the entrance sign on Main Street.
As further recited in the award certificate, Bill and Rosemary have consistently exhibited the highest ideals of selfless community service.
