National Volunteer Week

Is it a coincidence that National Library Week and National Volunteer Week share dates this year? Perhaps, but it’s also fitting. ACPL depends on the great work of our volunteers.

One of those volunteers is Sherrie Linton, a faithful hand at the Nelsonville Public Library since February, 2012. She helps with shelving and a variety of other projects. Sherrie is a lifelong resident of Athens County. She grew up in the Plains and graduated from the Plains High School, before consolidation.

One of her favorite experiences at the library was helping with the “maker/breaker” program this past winter. “They took old toys apart and then put them back together to make other toys. All of the children were quite creative,” Sherrie said.

This year’s National Library Week theme is “Endless Possibilities @ Your Library.” Sherri enbraces that statement every week.

“She is always pleasant and willing to jump in,” says Mary Van Doren, the children’s librarian in Nelsonville. “In addition to helping with projects, she also helps me with tai-chi!”

Thanks Sherrie for your generous time and endless possibilities!
