Those who can, do.
Those who can do more, volunteer. (author unknown)
Friends of the Library is lucky enough to have a large group of people who "do more". There are about 50 of these wonderful folks and they sort donated materials in the garage & the back room, shelve books, clerk in the Friends Bookstore, staff our sidewalk sales, serve on our governing board and work hard at supporting the library in every way they can. We couldn't let National Volunteer Week (April 26 - May 2) pass without noting their hours of dedicated service.
So Thank You Volunteers both past & present! Thank you for believing in literacy. Thank you for valuing the world of books. Thank you for striving to keep abreast of new media technology. Most of all, thank you for understanding that all of these things come together in our public library and for joining us here.
