Since the library's volunteer program began in 1979, more than 500,000 hours of service have been contributed by this special group of individuals. "Volunteers: Adding Value on Both Sides" is an article published in the December edition of the Illinois Library Association's Reporter.  Written by our Volunteer Coordinator Caryl Medsker, it highlights many of the ways our volunteers make a difference every day.

As Caryl explains, "Our volunteers have made it possible for us to become a five-star library, offering programs and services to our community that would not be possible if we were to rely on paid staff alone. They make the Arlington Heights Memorial Library a truly special place."

At this year's Volunteer Recognition Luncheon, sponsored by the Friends of the Library, we celebrated a huge milestone in library history - 500,000 hours of service to the library since the volunteer program began in 1979.
Our 295 volunteers work in the library, on the bookmobile and at the Arlington Heights Senior Center providing 28,074 hours of service this year alone.
Pictured above are some of the volunteers who received special recognition for hours of service, years of service and the President's Service Award. This year's Volunteer of the Year is Sandy Kaempen who contributed 611 hours of service in 2011.
We would like to thank all of our wonderful volunteers for all of their help. We couldn't do it without you!
