Thank You

Volunteers

""The Urbana Free Library acknowledges and thanks the dedicated group of 2016/2017 volunteers, whose support contributes to our continued success. Thank you all! In addition to all of the work you do at and for the Library, you are ambassadors into our community, and we are grateful for our ongoing relationship.

Between March 1, 2016 and February , 28, 2017, 382 hours of volunteer time were logged.  According to the most current information from Independent Sector for Illinois, that translates to $60,360! Over the next year, the Library will be increasing volunteer opportunities for Library volunteers, and we already have two new groups from UIUC who have signed volunteer applications. One has already started working on landscape cleanup. Click here to learn more about volunteering at the Library.
