Eileen Arnot
Friend of the Year 2021

Eileen has been a dedicated volunteer at Books Again for over a decade specializing in children’s books. A number of years ago she took over the distribution of children’s books to every youngster who attended the annual State Fair Kids Day Parade. She organized the crew of volunteers and collected books during the year in advance of the parade. Then she and her helpers would proceed down the parade route with a wagon load of books and make sure that every child was given an appropriate book.

Eileen has been a key volunteer at the store and provided leadership in guiding the many aspects of making our collection the best it can be.

She has been a member of the Friends of the Library Board for the past six years and for the last couple of years has been the Chairperson of the Books Again Management Committee as a representative of the Board.

As a volunteer at the store and on the Friends Board she has given thousands of hours to the betterment of the Pueblo Library District and is highly deserving of this honor.
