LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending Our Lady of Mercy High School Library
upon the occasion of being designated Honorable Mention by The Rochester
Regional Library Council

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize that the
quality and character of life in the communities across the great State
of New York is reflective of certain exemplary institutions whose
purpose is dedicated to serving the community and the needs of its citi-
zenry; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
Our Lady of Mercy High School Library upon the occasion of being desig-
nated Honorable Mention by the Rochester Regional Library Council, to be
celebrated at the Council's Annual Membership Meeting on Thursday, June
6, 2013; and
WHEREAS, The Rochester Regional Library Council (RRLC) is a multi-type
library network serving libraries and library systems in the five-county
Rochester region of Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Wayne and Wyoming coun-
ties; and
WHEREAS, RRLC provides programs and services that enhance member
library cooperation, service delivery and resource sharing, and serves
as a forum for the unified representation of library interests helping
members achieve together what could not be achieved separately; and
WHEREAS, Through RRLC, its members can coordinate and relate their
diverse activities to create a more effective service network to improve
information access for the people of the Rochester region and beyond;
and
WHEREAS, Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women's Library serves 690
students from grades 6-12, and is available each day to support the
school's diverse population; and
WHEREAS, The library media specialist at Our Lady Of Mercy, Kim
Rouleau, has infused research and information literacy skills into core
curricula by partnering with classroom teachers; not only does this
library program support school curriculum, but encourages students to
read for personal enjoyment, become involved in community events, and
take ownership of their library by volunteering and serving on a library
advisory group; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when an insti-
tution of such noble aims and accomplishments is brought to our atten-
tion, it should be recognized and applauded by all the citizens of this
great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the Our Lady of Mercy High School Library upon the occasion of
being designated Honorable Mention by the Rochester Regional Library
Council; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Our Lady of Mercy High School Library.
