Library Staff Holiday Ugly Sweater Contest – And the Winner Is …


It was a difficult contest to judge and, well, frankly hard to look at … but the winner is:

Sonia Pacheco. And she is (somehow) so proud!

But the other contestants (Joanne Mello, Heather Tripp, Kayla Hodgson, Yueqing Chen, and Susanne Andrews) have nothing to be ashamed about. OK, they do, those were some pretty UGLY sweaters! Congratulations ALL! Happy Holidays!
