Library Volunteers, Y'all!

Shellie Zeigler
Talking Book Services Director
Mississippi Library Commission

We've been celebrating National Library Week all week, but did you know that it's National Volunteer Week as well? We thought this was the perfect time to honor our Mississippi Library Commission volunteers. Today, the Talking Book Services Department held our Annual Volunteer Recognition event. We celebrated our volunteers and the many hours they have contributed to MLC.

Krista Estes, Volunteer Network Officer at the Mississippi Commission for Volunteer Services, was guest speaker. Since last April, our volunteers have donated a grand total of 2,858 hours of their time!

All the volunteers received a certificate signed by Deborah Bryant, First Lady of Mississippi, as well as a letter of appreciation for their service. Of special note is our volunteer Melvin Smitherman, who received an honorable mention for the Governor's Initiative for Volunteer Excellence Award. Thank you for all you do!

If you or someone you know is unable to read standard print due to a visual, physical, or organic reading disability, or if you are an institution which serves such individuals, please contact us at 1-800-446-0892 or to learn more about Talking Book Services at the Mississippi Library Commission.
