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!
