December 5 is International Volunteer Day
International Volunteer Day is held each year on 5 December. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to celebrate volunteers and the many ways in which they build resilient communities.
At Kitchener Public Library, we have 554 volunteers who generously donate 11,000 hours each year and participate in over 25 different opportunities!
Our volunteers take books to at-home readers, run English Conversation Circles, read with young children, tutor students, assist with programs, offer well-maintained book collections, provide résumé coaching, tune instruments, and give much needed assistance.
Every day, they play a vital role in welcoming our community to engaging spaces where people connect, ideas flourish and lives are transformed.
