Library System Says "Thanks" To Volunteers

St. Cloud, MN, April 2011: April 10-16, 2001 is National Volunteer Week. Great River Regional Library (GRRL) recognizes and appreciates the efforts of their volunteers.

GRRL seeks dedicated and committed volunteers to enhance the service provided to its communities. Each volunteer has unique qualities and GRRL is grateful for the energy and enthusiasm they bring to the organization.

During 2010, library users in Central Minnesota benefitted from the volunteer efforts of more than 750 individuals who donated more than 17,500 hours of their time to GRRL. “Volunteers have an impact on the services we provide and play an important role in the success of GRRL,” said Sunny Hesse, the library system’s human resources coordinator, who oversees the volunteer recognition program.

“Through their actions, it is evident that our volunteers love their libraries” Hesse said. “We are very fortunate to have a group of volunteers that care enough to make a difference in their community.”
