Warren Moore has been volunteering at Central Library 2-3 times a week since 2009.
A former Marine who is retired from a long career with the Federal Government, Moore works for over six hours each day that he volunteers, and treats his time at Central as a serious commitment. He helps out with a variety of jobs in circulation, and you can often find him shelving in the fiction section, or putting out new hold items.
“I like to stay busy, and I am learning from my work here,” he says. “Not only that, I like the people at the Library.”
In 2010, during an unexpected power outage, that included calming and talking through the elevator door to a gentleman who was briefly stuck in the second floor elevator, until Library staff were able to open the door manually.
