Members of the Halifax County Library Board on Tuesday afternoon recognized Carol Ann Beadles, Support Services Administrator for the local library system, for being named an “Outstanding Employee” by the Virginia Public Library Directors Association.

She was nominated for the award by Library Director Jay Stephens.

“She did an outstanding job keeping the library system running smoothly after the previous director and branch manager resigned and she has been a great help to me since I arrived (back in December),” Stephens said. The award was one of the statewide awards given to public library employees annually at the association’s spring meeting.

In other business Tuesday board members approved the use of funds that remained in the 2014 operating budget to provide library staff members with a one time bonus of $300. The funds were available after several position vacancies were not filled immediately. They also approved an operating budget of $424,066 for the coming FY 2015.

Board members also discussed the possibility of future programs, especially programs with authors.
