Rep. Evan Jenne Honored by Friends

Evan Jenne and Lisa Manners
Florida Library Association Advocacy Committee

Florida State Representative Evan Jenne, U.S. House District 100, was presented a Legislative Award from the Florida Library Association at the October meeting of the Friends of the Broward County Library, Inc.

Jenne was instrumental in restoring state aid to public libraries during the 2010 legislative session after it had been removed from the proposed 2009-2010 Transportation and Economic Development budget. State funds, although seriously reduced in recent years, are crucial to libraries throughout the state and a necessary supplement to Broward’s ever diminishing county funds, the primary financial support for the library.

In accepting the award Jenne stated that he would always advocate for libraries and library supporters. He said he had visited all the libraries in his district, where “the work you do betters your community.”
