Background Discussion

Staff has prepared the attached Proclamation to acknowledge and show gratitude to the numerous and devoted Library volunteers who selflessly offered over 25,000 hours of assistance in support of all locations last year (equivalent to 12 full-time staff members).  Manatee County Libraries could not function without volunteers who serve on our boards, commissions, and committees to raise funds, plan events, assist in shaping policies, and advocate on behalf of the library system and community as a whole.  Equally important are those volunteers who tirelessly work in our libraries and bookstores on a daily basis providing additional support.  These valued individuals make the successful completion of services possible.
