2013 Volunteers Receive Certificates at the Community Club's May Meeting

Library Volunteers Honored At The May Community Club Meeting! The Richland Public Library honored their new volunteers on May 2nd at the Richland Community Club’s May meeting. This annual event is a way the library can thank new volunteers for their service to the library. This year’s volunteers donated many hours of their time and were especially helpful in leading our children’s programming and assisting in our outreach program. Tara Huff led the Tuesday afterschool storytimes and was assisted by Wendy Sinn, Alexys Sinn and Carey Canaday. This program requires hours of planning and an ongoing commitment from the volunteers and has been very successful. On average 10 – 15 children participate in the weekly program, which runs from September through April every year. Julie McClure volunteers weekly and assists in preparing books for our outreach program with Pekin Child Care and Pekin Kindergarten. Sandy Eidahl shuttles our outreach books between Pekin and the library during the school year as well as to Pekin Child Care during the summer months. Several of our previously honored volunteers still donate many hours to the library and we are thankful to have their continued support. It is because of the commitment of our volunteers that our library can offer programs and services that are rarely found in a town of our size. The library staff and board of trustees would like to heartily thank our volunteers who truly represent the heart and spirit of Richland! Thanks also to the Richland Community Club who has hosted our volunteer appreciation ceremony for the past three years.
