Library trustees and commissioners honor TCV publisher

by Richard K. Moore

The California Association of Library Trustees and Commissioners (CALTAC) recognized William Marshak, publisher of Tri - City Voice, “for outstanding media coverage or special services to libraries.”

Upon reviewing the nomination by Jean Hofacket, Alameda County Library in Fremont, CALTAC cited Marshak and TCV for many contributions to libraries. Of special note, he helped create a monthly column, written by Fremont Main Library staff, to highlight various library services as well as to introduce a “database of the month” feature. TCV also provides extra copies of back issues for Fremont staff to distribute at community events.

Following the publication of each of the columns, usage statistics for the featured database have at least doubled. Thus, even those outside of TCV’s greater Tri-City coverage area benefit from information that might not otherwise be easily available.

As stated in one nomination support letter, “[TCV] truly extends the outreach of the public library to the community, promoting an educated populace and lifelong learning.
TCV has been instrumental in aiding the Fremont Main Library and other branches of the Alameda County library system in getting the word out that it isn’t all on the Internet!”

Note: In April of this year, Sharon and William Marshak were nominated by the Rotary Club of Mission San Jose and received one of the first District 5170 PR/Media awards from Rotary International “For Professional Excellence and Service in the field of Media and Media Relations.” These awards were developed to recognize non-Rotarian journalists who “most effectively captured the essence of Service Above Self and/or community up-build in his or her work, and conveyed it to a broad audience.”
