Cindy has done a number of projects for the library, from learning our Delivery processing system, to program help, to data entry for our Event Calendar. She ’ s been volunteering for about three years. What led you to volunteer? In retirement I wanted to remain just as busy, if not busier as when I was working. I was in education for 40 years, and most of that time I spent as an elementary school librarian...libraries have my heart! I wanted to continue to enrich my life by filling my days with a variety of volunteer and social activities. Top of my list...volunteering at the library! Most proud of having accomplished? I am thankful and proud that I have been able to lead an active and productive life. I have a wonderful group of friends and I adore my family, especially my four year old grandson who has brought more joy and happiness than I ever could have imagined! I am proud of the years I spent touching the lives of so many chil- dren. I am thankful for the wonderful parents that I was able to work with along the way. I am proud to lead the volunteer efforts at Treasure House Fashions, a non - profit benefitting women in challenging situations. I participate in a monthly book club which has introduced me to books I wouldn't have picked out on my own. I have become a regular theater goer. And I am proud to say that I ex- plore new adventures each week with my grandson as I introduce him to the world of books, all the cultural activities the city has to offer young children, and much more. What is some advice for young people? Seek out a mentor in the field you aspire to work in and take time to learn the history and the lessons learned from those who have been there. Be OK with not knowing it all! What do you like to read? I actually love young adult literature. There are so many great stories in that genre.
