Volunteers keep library humming along
September 2013 is Volunteer Appreciation Month at the Mount Pleasant Regional Library. It is with grateful hearts that we have set aside this month to express our appreciation to the volunteers who have helped us over the past 12 months. If you have been at this library branch, you have experienced the results of our volunteers’ work: library materials on the shelves and in the right places; children’s program materials neatly prepared; chairs set up for programs; items tagged so that you can check them out yourself, without having to wait on staff; and more.Our volunteers have sorted countless donated books so that you can benefit from the proceeds of the Friends of the Library book sales. I could go on and on.I’m always proud to be a part of the staff of this library because of my hard-working, dedicated co-workers. We truly have a wonderful staff. But our volunteers make me even prouder – we are so very fortunate to have such dedicated helpers. Thank you to each and every one of our volunteers.
