The Middle and High School Library closed early on Monday, but it was far from empty. Librarians Veronica (High School) and Margaret (Middle School) hosted a thank you party for this year’s library volunteers. Complete with smoked salmon, plenty of cookies, and mulled wine, the volunteers felt very appreciated and enjoyed visiting with one another.
During a regular school week many of the volunteers do not see each other, coming in only once or twice. These volunteers, made up of loving St. John’s mothers, keep the library running smoothly. They come in to help circulate books, prepare and process new books, and decorate the library for each season. Without the volunteers the collection of 20,000+ books would be impossible to navigate. We are all very thankful for their help and support.
