“True humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less” CS Lewis.

Our volunteers are the front line and face of our service, they are by far our most valuable resource. They not only do the hosting role of rough edges but also build connections with our patrons which is what makes the lasting difference.
