District Supervisor – Ali
"It's an honor to serve my community in this role and increase Douglas County residents' quality of life through the generosity and spirit of volunteerism, both by giving and receiving."
James H. LaRue/Highlands Ranch Coordinator – Kim
"I spent many days in the hospital as a young girl. One of things that made those stays bearable was the unselfish, generous spirit of the volunteers. I see the same giving spirit in the volunteers at Douglas County Libraries. Whatever their age, whatever their reason for volunteering, they are an integral and much appreciated part of the library."
Lone Tree Coordinator – Teresa
"Without our volunteers it would be very difficult to provide all of our services in a timely manner. We care about how our volunteers are feeling, we make sure they are happy, we treat them like family, and we value all of them. Our volunteers make us smile."
Parker Coordinator – Sylvia
"The volunteers at our libraries are some of the most educated, dedicated, and animated people I've ever met."
Philip S. Miller/Castle Rock and Louviers Coordinator – Jennifer
“I feel so fortunate to work with a dedicated group of volunteers who share their time, skills and passion for libraries with us. The practical value of their gifts enrich our community, enhance literacy efforts, and touch countless lives. Anne Franke wrote, ‘Those who give will never be poor.’”
Castle Pines and Roxborough Coordinator - Laura
“My favorite quote is from Amelia Earhart: ‘A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.’”
Book Start Coordinator - Geri
“Book Start volunteers visit our county’s youngest residents each week at child care centers to share books, songs and fingerplays. The skills they are modeling are the building blocks for brain development and reading readiness. Their personal investment in this program is humbling. How lucky I am to work with such incredible volunteers!”
Volunteer Connect Douglas County Coordinator - Linda
"I’m thrilled to be part of VolunteerConnectDC.org! It’s my sincere passion to help grow this valuable program for our community, by working with spirited volunteers, organizations and community members. One of my favorite quotes is ‘Volunteerism is currency that appreciates,’ by Susan J. Ellis."
