Many Thanks

CheckJean H. puts in a lot of volunteer hours at the library, doing literacy tutoring, going through the donated books and other items, restocking the shelves in the front hallway, and acting as Treasurer for the Friends of the Library.  Because she puts in so many volunteer hours here, her employer, CenterPoint Energy, has donated $500 to the Friends of the Library.  Thank you Jean and thank you CenterPoint!!  [Despite how much Jean does, the library is always looking for additional intelligent, reliable volunteers, especially adults, because they can volunteer while the teenagers are at school.]  Clipart © Jupiter Images.
