11 Years of Service

Jay started volunteering at Douglas County Libraries (DCL) in 2007. He has physical limitations that make everyday life challenging. His mother or Neighbor Network have transported Jay to the Castle Rock branch one to two times a week for 11 years so he can give back to the community. Jay’s stamina and resolve to make volunteering a top priority is admirable. He has processed hundreds of thousands of books for DCL during his tenure, making many of them ready for the used bookstore to end up in patrons’ home libraries.

Jay and his mom recently moved to a new home; his smile and fervor for life will be greatly missed. Thank you Jay!

Thank you to all Volunteers!

April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month and we celebrate those who dedicate their time to be stewards and leaders of our community through volunteerism. National Volunteer Appreciation Month also encompasses National Volunteer Week. This year, National Volunteer Week is celebrated April 15-21.

A special thank you to all the volunteers who make a positive difference in our communities by donating their time and talents. 

“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”                            –Author Unknown

Exceptional Volunteers at Parker Library

“Today was a busy day at the Parker Library! Our shelving staff was short-handed, and volume of books returned much higher than normal. Thanks to our volunteers Lindsay and Anson who worked so hard to shelve materials and keep us on track to finish our tasks.  We could not manage without them!    –Parker Library SupervisorVolunteer at Parker Library
