On May 11, the annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon, funded by the Friends of the Library, was held to honor our dedicated group of library volunteers. We celebrated their combined contribution of 25,382 hours of service to the Library. What a difference our 248 volunteers make each day to help expand our services and add value to the lives of our residents! They work throughout the Library, on the bookmobile and at the Arlington Heights Senior Center. Volunteers assist staff with a mulitude of tasks, including helping out at library programs, staffing the Reading Room and teaching computer classes at the Senior Center, sorting books for the Friends' book sales and helping residents improve their English. We'd like to thank all of our volunteers for their many contributions. VolServiceAwardWinners2010
Volunteers receiving special recognition for 500-9500 hours of service include John Ivory, Gene Taylor, Dorothy Roser, Sandy Kaempen, Stanley Stec, Pat Dennehey, Marsha Balster, Bonnie Romanowski, Cindy Viti, Dorothy Hlavacek, Tom Dooley, Florence Combs, Joan Toomey, Joe Cesario, Jerry Westfall, Nancy Clancy and Jack Muldoon.
Vol of Year TitleSpecial congratulations go to Joan Huff, our Volunteer of the Year. This is a one-time award that is given to the volunteer who has contributed the most hours during the previous year and who has not previously received it. Joan was awarded the Volunteer of the Year for her contribution of 495 hours of service to the Library in 2009.
