Volunteers are fantastic! Sydney Wardyn and Heather Harrison took over Story Hour through the Summer and did a fantastic job! Now, if they would just train me . . .
Diane Peters does a wonderful job covering books and getting them all ready to hit the shelves for readers…
Our library is very fortunate to have such great help!
Also…stay tuned Diane Thompsen is going to get the vhs/dvd section whipped into shape so it is much easier to find what you are looking for…hey, she volunteered!
