Marilyn Keyes started volunteering at the Westover Branch Library two and a half years ago. As a resident of Arlington for 36 years, she was looking for a way to give back to her community. Her volunteer job is to search for and process all the items that have been put on hold over the weekend – which is usually hundreds of items. So a few months after she started volunteering, Marilyn “recruited” her husband Steve to join her on Monday mornings.
Since then, Marilyn and Steve have done an amazing and thorough job searching for and sending out items on hold. This dynamic team has also taken on the unpacking and sorting of our massive Monday morning delivery.
And just a few months ago, Marilyn encouraged her daughter Krista to volunteer at Westover as well. Now Krista does a great job putting carts of items in call number order on Wednesday mornings, and even fills in searching for hold items when Marilyn and Steve are traveling.
We are grateful that Marilyn, Steve and Krista have taken on so much at Westover… The only problem is when they all go on vacation together!
