LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending the Brockport High School Library upon
the  occasion  of its designation as the 2014 School Library of the Year
by the Rochester Regional Library Council on June 5, 2014

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize that  the
quality  and character of life in the communities across the great State
of New York are  reflective  of  certain  exemplary  institutions  whose
purpose is dedicated to serving the community and the needs of its citi-
zenry; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly  proud  to  commend
the  Brockport  High School Library upon the occasion of its designation
as the 2014 School Library of the Year by the Rochester Regional Library
Council, to be celebrated at its Annual Meeting  on  Thursday,  June  5,
2014, at Casa Larga, Fairport, New York; and
  WHEREAS, The Rochester Regional Library Council (RRLC) is a multi-type
library network serving libraries and library systems in the five-county
Rochester region of Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Wayne and Wyoming coun-
ties; and
  WHEREAS,  RRLC  provides  programs  and  services  that enhance member
library cooperation, service delivery  and  resource  sharing;  it  also
serves  as  a  forum for the unified representation of library interests
helping members achieve together what could not be achieved  separately;
and
  WHEREAS,  Through  RRLC,  its  members can coordinate and relate their
diverse activities to create a more effective service network to improve
information access for the people of the Rochester  region  and  beyond;
and
  WHEREAS,  Brockport  High  School  Library's  Online Databases provide
access to thousands of magazines, journals, newspaper  articles,  refer-
ence  books,  and  ebooks;  the school's Style Manual is a comprehensive
guide to research and writing, as well as links  to  other  sites  which
provide instruction on citing sources in a research paper; and
  WHEREAS,  Under  the  luminous  direction of school Librarian Kathleen
Jaccarino, the Brockport High School Library is truly a place  to  learn
and  grow,  and  hosts  numerous  opportunities  to get both teacher and
student groups together for reading activities; and
  WHEREAS, Furthermore, Kathleen Jaccarino, and library staff, Jane Agte
and Pauline Pratt, are knowledgeable, enthusiastic, creative and  accom-
modating;  these  remarkable  women  take  on  much  more than their job
descriptions entail, cultivating relationships with faculty and students
alike, working on the school culture and  the  attitudes  students  have
toward reading; and
  WHEREAS,  It  is  the  sense of this Legislative Body that when insti-
tutions of such noble aims and accomplishments are brought to our atten-
tion, they should be recognized and applauded by  all  the  citizens  of
this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the Brockport High School  Library  upon  the  occasion  of  its
designation  as  the  2014  School  Library of the Year by the Rochester
Regional Library Council on June 5, 2014; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Librarian Kathleen Jaccarino, Brockport High School  Library,
Brockport, New York.
