Branch Manager, Ronnie Davis, and Circulation Supervisor, Paula Greer, and the entire staff of Albany Library want to thank our team of 48 fantastic volunteers!
The volunteers are well-known to library users. They’re always on the front lines: shelving holds, dvds and new books. They help organize the magazines and paperbacks. Fearless volunteers fill carts from the bookdrop, ducking dvds and books flying through the drop slots! Teen volunteers help with homework center and keep the Teen Area in order. Kid power volunteers help the youngest children spin and play games.
Each year, the library works with Albany Middle School to help many students fill their volunteer requirements. We’re really lucky when talented and trained short-timers stick around to volunteer later in high school.
And, of course, all the Book Sales (and all the fantastic programs) are a result of the volunteers extraordinaire at Friends of the Albany Library!
Alameda County Library is recognizing all its volunteers this week (April 15-21, 2012) with a nice gift and treats! The gift of public service is one we can all give in some way, and we’re lucky the following people have chosen to donate their time and effort to Albany Library.
