Heroes of the Week: Little Free Library Volunteers
“All of our staff, board members and volunteers are essential to our survival,” says Megan Hanson, Little Free Library’s library development specialist, “and the Stewards are the backbone of the Little Free Library movement.”
In addition, Bol stated in an American Profile interview, “People feel like it’s a gift to the neighborhood. I’ve actually seen people hug the library.”
Volunteers are vital to Little Free Library and help ensure the continued sharing of literature within Wisconsin and beyond. Currently, the nonprofit is looking for additional volunteers to help with woodworking, painting, administration and mapping. Donations to the GIFT Fund—which helps get libraries into the hands of folks and communities who cannot afford books—are especially appreciated.
