  • Circulation desk--checking books in and out, entering new patrons
  • Shelving books and other materials
  • Preparing books and other materials for the shelves--applying book protection covers, CD and DVD protectors, affixing labels
  • Repairing books
  • Searching for and preparing books and other materials for Interlibrary Loan delivery and/or for hold shelf when received
  • Calling patrons when Interlibrary Loan materials have been received
  • Helping in our childrens' department 
  • Correspondence to donors

Our 2017 Volunteer of the Year is Bev Ginnow.  Bev is an extraordinary volunteer at the Olson Memorial Library; she truly does make a difference and is completely dedicated to all the tasks she performs. You will see her working at our Circulation Desk. She is enthused about any task we ask her to do and brings the absolutely warmest smile to everyone she comes in contact with.  We are extremely proud to claim Bev as our volunteer.  CONGRATULATIONS Betty Jo!


We are proud of these dedicated volunteers who have contributed many hours helping at the library.  Volunteers are very important to the smooth running of Olson Memorial Library.
