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 303 individuals and 18 groups generously helped the library from April 2014 through March 2015. Their contributions total 12,300 hours!

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