The Morris County Library was recently recognized by Gov. Chris Christie for what the governor called the library’s “invaluable contributions to the community.”

In a letter to Lynne Olver, library director, Christie acknowledged the key roles libraries play in towns throughout the state.

The governor noted with the advent of the Internet, libraries have become valuable sources of job and career-related information that can assist individuals with positive life changes.

“The difference that the Morris County Library makes in residents lives can be seen through the development of your community and the success of those who have been fortunate to benefit from its services throughout the years,” Christie wrote. “I commend the staff and all those associated with the library for their dedicated service and applaud the work they have done to promote literary engagement among members of the community.”

The governor’s letter was written in conjunction with Library Lovers Month in February.

The Morris County Library is located at 30 East Hanover Ave., in Whippany.
