OCL celebrates its volunteers


Several branches of the Ocean County Library recognized the many people who have volunteered their time to help us connect people and build community.

These events, part of the National Volunteer Week (April 21-27) festivities, were an opportunity for the library branches to thank those people who do such varied tasks a maintain the book shelves, clip newspaper articles, and deliver books and other materials to the county’s homebound residents.

The Toms River branch hosted a social tea for its volunteers April 23 in the Bishop Building.  Ocean County Library Director Susan Quinn and Assistant Director Valerie Bell presented Carol Lange a Bronze Level  Presidential Volunteer Service Medal for providing 126.5 hours of service during the past year.

Carol has assisted the library’s Public Relations department by combing local media for articles about Ocean County Library and maintaining a binder that contains those clippings for more than three years.

National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 to focus national attention on the impact and power of volunteerism and service as an integral part of our civil leadership and responsibility.
