Sandy is a quick study. The first couple of times she went into the stacks at the Quakertown branch with a list of titles needed to fulfill new holds, she was – in her own words – “terrible.”
Now, her word is “slick.”
“It’s a pretty long list when I come in on Monday mornings because people have had two days to put in requests for their books,” she explains. “Now I know how far down the rack I have to go for a certain letter. I’m having a good time!”
Sandy started volunteering at the Quakertown branch in 2017 after using that library for many years. After retiring from nursing, she had more time to devote to reading – and giving back.
“For me personally, I wanted to do something here because of my love of reading,” Sandy says. “It’s just a very interesting task. I get to see what books everyone is reading, and sometimes I write titles down because they look so interesting!”
If you’ve ever considered helping out at the library, Sandy can’t recommend it enough. “It’s very fulfilling to come in, do a little work, and work with all of the staff,” she says. “Everyone here has been so friendly and so appreciative.”
