IMAGE: A Heartfelt Thanks to Our Volunteers

National Volunteer Week (April 15 – 21, 2018) is an opportunity to thank the 13.3 million volunteers across Canada for the time and energy they contribute to causes that benefit our communities.

This week, we are celebrating the value of volunteering! Our volunteers build confidence, competence, connections and community. Their actions touch many lives and make our library a vibrant place where lives are transformed.

Library volunteers share a few hours a month to read to children, help students with their homework, take books to people at home, pitch-in at special events, research local history, lead English conversation circles, answer technology questions, coach job seekers, keep our shelves organized and chart our directions.

To all of our volunteers – thank you for your continued support!
