Congratulations to West Babylon’s Ashley McHugh-Chiappone for winning the Bringing Excellence in Service by Teens (B.E.S.T.) Award, Suffolk County Division. Ashley was nominated by Young Adult Librarian Ms. Agnello for her volunteer service at the Library for such programs as the Teen Advisory Group, Book Buddies, Battle of the Books and Advanced Battle to name a few. As part of her award, Ashley was honored at the Long Island Library Conference where she received a plaque, a small stipend and a gift certificate to McDonalds sponsored by Authors Unlimited. Ashley has been a vital member of the teen community and we wish her the best of luck as she graduates and heads to NYU.
