The Shining Star Awards were established in 2004 to honor an individual, business or organization and Friends of the Library member for their support of the library. Support includes volunteer efforts, advocacy, a program, or financial contributions.

In the Friends category, the Foundation rotates the honor to recognize Friends throughout Stanislaus County.

In 2011, The Joan Patterson Stellar Achievement Award was created to recognize a volunteer who has fulfilled a long-term, ongoing commitment of service to Stanislaus County Libraries.

Nominations are not accepted for this award, but Shining Star nominees and past recipients may be considered. A list of past honorees is included in the next section for your reference.

Please submit nominations no later than March 17, 2023. The Shining Star Awards will be announced on April 29, 2023.
