Library set to honor contributions of its volunteers
To the editor:
Canby Public Library is honoring the outstanding work of its volunteers with a volunteer recognition gala on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
Library volunteers contributed more than 2,650 hours of their time and talents to Canby Public Library in 2013. The thousands of hours of volunteer work contributed by our team of 45 individuals serves to illustrate the steadfast and generous spirit of volunteers in this community. Volunteers contribute to the mission of the library by taking on a variety of important roles, ranging from materials handling to fundraising to advocacy.
National Library Week and National Volunteer Week are both celebrated during the month of April. Please join us in the festivities on April 12 to publicly thank our volunteers for their valuable service to the community.
The event will kick off at 2:30 p.m. with Music in the Stacks, performed by the Pete Krebs Trio, followed by a recognition ceremony, refreshments, and more music.

Canby Library Supervisor
Thanks offered to volunteers in Canby schools
To the editor:
This week is National Volunteer Appreciation Week and I would like to offer a sincere thank you to all of the current and future volunteers in the Canby schools. The service you give the children and teachers in our community is truly valuable, and although we cant say it enough, we really appreciate all you do.
Thank you to the classroom helpers, workroom helpers, test proctors, crossing guards, PTA members, guest speakers, special events helpers, carnival volunteers and everyone else who generously gives their time.
Times are tough in education, and your efforts are more important than ever. You alleviate the burden of excessively large class sizes, are able to touch the lives of individual students, step in to do the jobs that support staff did before those positions were cut, and make the common good better. Thank you.
