“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands- one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” –
Audrey Hepburn

The heart of the Friends of the Library organization is the volunteers, without them we would cease to exist. Our
program is made up entirely of selfless individuals who are always willing to freely give of themselves. We have had
an incredible influx of volunteers at the Library this summer, ranging in age from middle school to senior citizens.
Our volunteers have helped with tasks, such as shelving books, preparing to mail out newsletters, putting up books in
the FOL Book Sale Room, sorting through and transporting yard sale items, cutting out hundreds and hundreds of
crafts for the summer reading program, helping to monitor large crowds at our programs, and simply being present as
a source of support. We cannot thank them enough!

If you or someone you know would like to volunteer please contact Amber Chancey. We would love for you to join
us on our quest to make Ozark the best little town around!

Amber Chancey, FOL President
