Library work: Refreshing change in environment

During my weekly stint as a library volunteer, I see a growing stack of books — and CDs and DVDs — that will be sent to people who requested them. These successful connections are the direct result of my volunteer effort. Those 800,000 hold requests a year throughout our three-county system are tangible results. (Figure based on number of holds placed by Sonoma County Library cardholders during Fiscal Year 2009, as reported in the Winter 2010 issue, Sonoma County Library Newsletter.)
