Library Volunteers

Literacy Source’s Lake City Center houses a growing library of over 2,000 books that serves as an important resource for students, volunteers, and staff. Over the years it has become apparent that the card catalog system used to lend books to the Literacy Source community was no longer serving our needs well. With the incredible support of a small group of library volunteers, we are excited to announce that we have completed the transition to an online, automated library catalog and lending system!

Our library volunteers play an important role in helping Literacy Source provide accessible reading materials for our students and instructional resources for our volunteers. Nancy Rauhauser, one of our long-time library volunteers, shared some words about her experience volunteering: “Even though working on the library doesn't put me in direct contact with immigrants much, I like the idea of being around people different than myself. Literacy opens doors for people; I'm happy to make a contribution to that.”

This achievement could not have been accomplished without the amazing effort and dedication of our library volunteers: Nina West, Jolene Vrchota, Nancy Rauhauser, Dave Langton, Jerry Chen, Celia Glover, Haley Erb, and Luise Asif. You can check out the result of their incredible work, our new library catalog, here.
