Each year, customers of the Idaho Talking Book Service (TBS) have the opportunity to nominate their letter carriers for the Postal Carrier of the Year Award. For 2014, Boise, ID, Cole Village Station City Carrier Tim Hoover received the coveted honor.

TBS is an audio book and magazine lending service offered free of charge by the Idaho Commission for Libraries to individuals with physical limitations. Customers of the service nominate why their carrier deserves the organization’s annual award in the delivery of TBS material. Customers nominated a total of 48 carriers for the 2014 award, and each nomination included a description of the nominee’s kindness.

“When people lose their sight, sometimes they can lose their connection to the world,” said Hoover. “TBS is a fantastic service that keeps that from happening.”

Two TBS customers who nominated Hoover for the award, Susan Ford and Dorothy Carpenter, joined TBS Regional Librarian Sue Walker, Five Mile Station Manager Jeff Winberry and Boise Postmaster Daniel Corral at a celebratory event at Cole Village Station to present Hoover with an award plaque and letter of appreciation from Idaho State Librarian Ann Joslin.
