SPL Appreciates Our Volunteers!

SPL has a very active volunteer program in the library. We have volunteers doing a variety of tasks: 
  • Shelf reading
  • Book mending
  • Book covering
  • Date card stamping
  • Library Board members
  • 211 Database editors
  • Warehouse deliveries
  • Friends of the Library
  • Bulletin Board maintenance
  • Recycling
  • Brochure supply
  • Home delivery service
In 2011, the volunteers contributed 1,976 hours of time to the library doing these tasks. We don't know how we'd do it without their help!

Since April 15-21 is Volunteer Appreciation Week in Canada, yesterday we thought we'd show them how much we appreciate all they do with an Volunteer Appreciation tea.  There were a service awards given to various volunteers, lots of good food, and lots of good conversation.
