News from the Southborough Library about a remarkable teen:

Nicholas D’Errico has been coming to the Southborough Public Library ever since his pre-school years, when his family moved to town. For the past four years, Nick comes to the library ready to work – for free. He is an outstanding volunteer at the library. And this year, he was awarded a prize for excellence in volunteering at the library.

The Massachusetts Regional Library System, in partnership with the hockey-playing Boston Bruins has generously given prizes to participating readers and libraries to recognize a teen who has given hours to their library through volunteering!

Nick was chosen to win the puck prize – a hockey puck signed by Bruins goaltender Tim “the Tank” Thomas.

Nick was nominated by the Southborough Library staff because he is a friendly person who gets along with all staff and with the public. Children’s Librarian, Kim Ivers says, “He’s been asked to do all sorts of things and he’s always happy to help.” Nick has helped at the library – preparing for Harry Potter parties, making a planetarium, and most recently moving several hundred books after the summer flood at the library, as we moved out of and back in to the Children’s Room – and he volunteers with a welcome smile on his face.

Nick is a junior in high school. The staff of the library congratulates Nick and appreciates his volunteer efforts!
