Volunteer Luncheon 2012

Library staff and the Friends of Freeman recently held our annual volunteer luncheon, where we recognized our wonderful, irreplaceable volunteers, such as these pictured above, with mock paycheck certificates.  All in all, our volunteers' combined efforts at Freeman Library for the previous fiscal year were valued at nearly $200,000!  What a contribution!  If you would like to be a part of a group that both loves the library and enjoys freely giving back to the community, become a volunteer today!
