To show its appreciation for the dedicated individuals who donate their time and energy to benefit the library, Mendon Public Library recognizes those individuals who volunteer 25 hours or more.
Here's how the volunteer recognition program works:
- From the summer of 2013 on, volunteers will “receive” a bookplate for every 25 hours that they work. This bookplate will be inserted into a new library book in the volunteer’s name.
- When a volunteer reaches 25 books, he/she is awarded a bookshelf named in his/her honor.
- All bookplates will be for individuals, as opposed to groups.
- A shelf may consist of one person’s books or of books accrued in a group setting (for example: a family, school group, church group, book club, etc.). If books are accrued in a group setting, the shelf nameplate will go to the group, and the books will be named for individuals.
- A book can only count towards one shelf.
- Volunteer hours eligible for the program include any hours that benefit the library, such as, but not limited to:
- Meetings attended (Friends, Board of Trustees, Capital Campaign)
- Volunteer work in library
- Volunteer program presentations
- Book sale (includes sorting)
- Hours worked at home to benefit the library (writing letters, calling, etc.)
*This program is for donations of time; other naming opportunities exist for monetary/resource donations.
Interested in volunteering? Complete the application and we will keep it on file. When a need arises that meets your interests, we will contact you.
It is the responsibility of the volunteer to log their hours via the "VOLUNTEER LOG" button provided below (or in the sidebar). To log your hours, you will first create an account (username & password), then follow the directions in order to carefully and accurately record your information. If you have questions, call the library at 624-6067.
