Volunteers

Do anything but let it produce joy!

~Henry Miller

 

Volunteers help in many ways. In 2016, our library volunteers provided over 25,000 hours of service:

  •     Shelving requested items
  •     Pulling requested items to fill patron requests
  •     Mending worn library materials
  •     Tutoring school age children
  •     Providing animals for Paws to Read programs
  •     Helping with computer classes
  •     Photographing library events
  •     Cleaning up and gardening on library grounds
     

Volunteers play a vital role in support of the Library's mission and goals. We appreciate how volunteers bring energy, enthusiasm, and willingness to help out  -- we appreciate everything they do!
