Sometime in 2007, I decided to ask if there were volunteer opportunities for adults at my public library. This is the absolute true story of how I became a volunteer coordinator.
I had just moved to Berwyn and after a year of fixing up an older Georgian style home, I finally wanted to get out and meet people. I also wanted to make better use of all the time I had spent at the library reading about every little thing that piqued my curiosity--something I didn't have time for in college. Some days I would spend the better part of the day at the library. So there had to be something productive I could do to help, right?
