Letters to the Editor

Neighbors keep the library humming along

Kitsap Regional Library Poulsbo Branch staff members wish to express their gratitude to the amazing folks who give of their time to support us as we serve the community’s many needs.

Each week, a dozen adult volunteers assist with a variety of tasks including cleaning and mending books, filing DVDs, shelving items being held for patrons, and pulling items for evaluation by librarians. Other adult volunteers teach library patrons basic Internet skills in our ongoing series of classes and in one-on-one tutoring sessions.

And, of course, we benefit financially from the hard work and dedication of the Poulsbo Friends of the Library group. The PFOL manage the in-branch used book sale shelves and the legendary library book sales held on third Saturdays of February, June and October each year. Their support allows the library to offer the Keeping Up With Technology series of workshops and to provide prize paperback books to the kids and teens who participate in our summer reading program.

Community teens make their own invaluable contributions through serving on the Poulsbo Branch Teen Advisory Board, as Reading Buddies to young children, and as program assistants.

Thank you all for benefiting your neighbors through your love of the library!

Suzanne Christman
