Thanks to Our 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 201 individuals and 30 groups generously helped the library from March 2018 through February 2019. Their contributions total 10,154 hours!

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