The Jean-Pierre family of Orange was named the AAUW Library Family of Year Saturday, March 30, at the City of Orange Public Library by American Association of University Women LFOY Chair Mary Ann Fetchin.  From left, are Janeviev Jean-Pierre, a first grader at West Orange Elementary; the mom, Amanda Jean-Pierre, a Clinical Ocologist in Lake Charles; and Erich Jean-Pierre, a fifth grader at West Orange Elementary.  Erich’s favorite books are Goosebumps and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, while Janeviev’s include Captain Underpants and Dogman.  Mom Amanda enjoys audio and e-books.  They were presented a plaque, a Barnes and Noble gift certificate, and a certificate of award. The presentation was held in conjunction with an Orange Friends of the Library meeting.  Orange librarians furnish the name of the most active library family participating each year to AAUW.  The Friends of the Library is readying its organization for the annual Library Used Book Sale the week of April 8 at the City of Orange Library.
