Volunteer Spotlight


Jaiden, a teen volunteer

volunteer nov 1I volunteer at the library as a way to give back to my community. I love books and I love reading! I enjoyed reading with the "little buddies" during the summer reading program. Volunteering has allowed me to meet great people and become part of the Dripping Springs Library community.

My favorite part of my volunteer work is shelving. I get to see all different types of books and when I shelve books at the library, the patrons benefit because resources are in the correct place and easily accessible.

The library is an important place for everyone in the community. Lots of kids come to the library to do homework or for reading.
