Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines a volunteer as “a person who enters into or offers himself for a service of his own free will.” Perhaps that means that we volunteer because something that is very personal encourages us to do so. Volunteering can bring to an individual a continuing sense of belonging to a unique family. We all need to belong and it is the hope of the Shingletown Library that you choose this organization to offer yourself as a volunteer; your rewards will be immeasurable.
