William Shakespeare once said “The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.” April 23rd marked the birthday of Shakespeare, as well as the beginning of National Volunteer Week. Volunteers, people who are able and willing to share their time and talents freely, are fundamental to strong communities. Keene Memorial Library is blessed to have a dedicated team of volunteers to appreciate this week. Our volunteers work hard to keep the bookshelves tidy and the programs running smoothly. Programs like Craft Time, Story Time, Baby & Toddler Play, and Lego Play are possible, in part, due to the work of volunteers. Currently, Keene has 12 volunteers who work, on average, a combined 100 hours each month at the library! Their dedication is admirable, and their efforts are definitely appreciated.
