Recognizing Library Volunteers

During National Volunteer Week, April 21-27, the Santa Cruz Public Library System is honoring the many individuals who donate their gift of service in support of the Library’s mission to "provide vibrant physical and virtual public spaces where people connect, discover, and engage the mind."

Last year, almost 200 community members contributed 7,700 hours across all ten branches in such diverse programs as Tales to Tails, Book Buddies, Dial-a-Story, the Craft Group, the Advisory Council of Teens, The Big Read, and the Summer Reading Program. Volunteers also serve as branch assistants, programming assistants, homework helpers, chess coaches, student interns, computer coaches, technical services support, grounds and maintenance support, and storytime assistants.

According to Teresa Landers, Director of Santa Cruz Public Libraries, "Library volunteers exemplify the tradition of service and are integral members of the Library team."

National Volunteer Week began in 1974 as a way to publicly recognize and celebrate the efforts of volunteers who provide countless hours of service to civic, non-profit and other causes across the country.
