National Volunteer Week

April 23 - 29, 2017

National Volunteer Week is set aside each year to acknowledge and thank the 12.7 million volunteers across Canada for the time and energy they contribute to causes that benefit our communities.

Volunteers are the roots of strong communities; they help communities grow and flourish. Our library is growing strong and making an impact because of volunteer involvement!

They 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.

Their actions touch many lives and make Kitchener Public Library an engaging place where people connect, ideas flourish, and lives are transformed.

To all of our wonderful volunteers, we say THANKS!
