Thanks, Star Volunteers!

Each spring, during our Volunteer Appreciation Week, we say a special thanks to the people who give their time to help ensure that our community enjoys great library service. These 275 individuals and 7 groups generously helped the library from April 2015 through March 2016. Their contributions total 11,256 hours!

We also thank our Library, Foundation, and Friends board members, and the dozens of helpers who work in our FriendShop Bookstore.
