Finally, we're beginning to see communities appreciate the heroes who surround us. One definition of a hero is “an ordinary person facing extraordinary circumstances and acting with courage, honor and self-sacrifice.”
During the 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 14, preschool Storytime, Miss Rhonda will be reading books featuring firefighters.
The volunteer profile this week is about Jack Evans who watched his wife Susan volunteer and then decided to join her in this pursuit a year ago. He is a lifelong reader and library patron and felt compelled to help.
Jack holds degrees in music, specializing in trumpet, and in accounting/auditing. He also worked in information security at the end of his career. This experience is so valuable as he helps to keep library computers updated each month. Working an average of two hours weekly, he tries to find some time to shelve books also. Not only does he volunteer, but he serves on the Library Advisory Board.
