On Thursday, December 4th, the Pinellas Talking Book Library honored its more than 30 valuable volunteers with a luncheon in their honor. After a luncheon provided by the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative and Talking Book Library staff, volunteers were presented with tokens of appreciation to recognize their efforts. “We could not operate the library without our volunteers” said the TBL Library Manager Marilyn Stevenson. “They devote hours each week to assist us in providing quality library services to those in our community who have a print disability.” Volunteers received a personal thank you for their hard work and devotion to the organization by the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative Board Chairman, Irv DeToro and new Board Member, Danielle Harkins. Several volunteers were recognized for their length of service, including a group that has been with the library since it opened in 1993.
The Pinellas Talking Book Library provides Braille and recorded materials to print disabled residents of Pinellas, Manatee and Sarasota Counties. To learn more about the TBL, or if you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please call us at (727) 441-9958
