While in the Library yesterday I glanced at the Volunteer of the Year plaque hanging in the foyer and saw my name. “Oh yeah,” I thought, “they gave it to me in 2012!” It was a nice reminder of my days as volunteer storytime presenter at the Library.
That was a fun job, getting to know lots of preschoolers and their parents, as we sang and did interactive stuff. I did it for 3 years when my kids were younger and could participate, too. That experience led me into the Friends of the Library and eventually into City Council. It was important to me on a few levels.
