Miss Barb: A Hometown Hero

Barb and KidsThis morning, our very own Barb DeYoung was honored as 91.3 WCSG’s first ever Hometown Hero! Barb, beloved youth librarian at the Byron Township branch, was surprised with this accolade during her morning storytime in front of all her little fans! Don and Steve, DJs from WCSG’s Family Friendly Afternoon Show, recognized Barb as an ordinary person doing extraordinary things and making others’ lives better. Barb was nominated as a Hometown Hero by her longtime friend, Robin.

Congratulations Barb! We are so proud of you and all the great work that you do. This recognition was well-deserved!
