A little lady with a lot of heart!

 For those of you who are frequent Library visitors (and we hope that means you!), you may have seen this friendly face shelving media on the second floor every Monday and Wednesday.  Donna is just one of our many wonderful volunteers who graciously donate their time to help out at the Library. 

Donna has been volunteering here for over 3 years!   What keeps her coming back?  She says that it is the people who work here, and the people she comes in contact with, that she enjoys the most.   Some of her other interests include listening to music - “Any, in moderation,” she says - and dancing to salsa music.  If you are lucky enough, you may be able to strike up a conversation with Donna at the Library or get her to show you a few of her salsa steps.   Donna enjoys reading and frequently checks out library books to read aloud to her friend Angie who resides in a memory care unit.  Amazingly, she also finds time to participate in the ZUMC choir.

All of our terrific volunteers will be recognized later this month at a luncheon in their honor.  Last year, Donna was given special recognition as she logged the most hours among all of our volunteers!

Feeling motivated to volunteer now?  For more information, look at our volunteer opportunities page here.  There are a wide assortment of opportunities to suit your interests and time availability.   Simply fill out the application and return it to us.  We would love to have you join our team as volunteers really do make a difference!

I don’t know about you, but when I grow up, I want to be just like Donna!
