Volunteers Make the Library Go Round!

MPL loves our volunteers!

All those books, DVDs, and audio books that get checked out find their way back to us. Then we want them back on the shelves quickly and correctly. Thank goodness for our volunteers that do that for us every day of the week! Their efforts make a huge difference to your library services. Yesterday, library staff at the Madison Branch Library thanked our volunteer corps with a delicious homemade lunch. It was super yummy!

How can you get lunch from your library staff? Be a volunteer! Read more about Volunteers Make the Library Go Round!
