Volunteer Spotlight

Volunteers are the lifeblood of every successful community.  Without volunteers there would be very few food banks or youth sports programs, even less community theaters and sparsely run public libraries.  Even politicians would have a hard time campaigning for elections without volunteers.

At the library, volunteers are crucial, not only to the everyday running of the library but behind the scenes as well.  Library volunteers provide assistance with check-outs, issue library cards, help with device maintenance and guidance, handle returns and re-shelves, shift and organize sections, help with book and disc repairs, prep items for circulation, help work through reports, lead and assist with programming, fund raise, provide baked goods for events, and many, many more tasks too numerous to name.  Volunteers are the heart of the community and make visiting your public library a more personable, rewarding experience.

In order to honor those wonderful individuals who volunteer at Fort Bragg Library, we have set up a new feature here on the fortbragglibrary.org website entitled Volunteer Spotlight.  Through Volunteer Spotlight, you will get to know our library volunteers; why they volunteer for the library, what they do as volunteers, and, we hope, you will have an insight into what makes your local library the ideal volunteer experience.  (Hint: It’s the people!)
