Volunteers form the heart and soul of the Schoolcraft community work force in many special ways, according to one who knows–Faye Van Ravenswaay, director of the Schoolcraft Library. Her organization plans to recognize its many faithful volunteers during the week of April 12-18.

The Friends of the Library (FOL) hold several annual events to raise money for the library and plug for the recognition of the library in the Schoolcraft community. They sponsor the Jubilee of Trees, the Book & Bake Sale in April and a summer family-friendly program in July that is usually held in Burch Park. Their dedication, commitment, and fundraising expertise enable the library to provide programming for all ages, such as the popular summer reading program, as well as purchase books, materials, and other exciting technology that benefit the community, according to Van Ravenswaay.

The library staff and its board wish to publicly express gratitude for the volunteers many years of service in support of the library with this public recognition.
