Volunteers enrich our library in many ways. They bring enthusiasm, added talent,
and fresh perspective to the library. Volunteers contribute to sound working
relationships with recognized agencies as well as with community groups and organizations.

value to our libraries, but an immeasurable value in service to our local and global
