CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Roseanne Gauthier, a youth services librarian in Charlottetown, has won the Reading Town P.E.I. Champion of Reading award.

The award recognizes a person in the community who champions reading as being essential to the quality of our lives and to our ability to take our place on the world stage.

Gauthier is dedicated to sharing literacy with children and teens across the Island and makes a kindred spirit in everyone she meets at the Confederation Centre Public Library. 

She played a critical role in expanding the diversity of the library’s collection and was also a leader in the PAWS to Read program, which matches children with therapy dogs.
