Maxine Bleiweis, director of the Westport Public Library, was honored for her record of service to both the Westport Public Library and the library profession.
On Tuesday, Bleiweis, who has served the Westport community for the past 13 years, received this year's Outstanding Librarian Award from the Connecticut Library Association.
"It has been my privilege and pleasure to devote my professional career to serving public libraries in Connecticut, a state known for the value it places on libraries," Bleiweis said in a statement. "While this award is made to one librarian, it really belongs to the community I serve a community of people who enable the Westport Public Library to lead the way in the library world."
