September 18, 2014- Maxine Kossman
The Grande Prairie Public Library nominates Maxine Kossman as the volunteer of the week. Maxine is not here for the winter so she looks for some volunteer work at the Library during the summer. This year she has come in faithfully, even when I had to be away, to look after the Christian Fiction section. She looks at each book, sees if it is in good repair; checks that we have the entire series or if something is missing; she is doing an inventory for me at the same time. This is an area where I have not had enough time to look after as well as I have wanted to and having such a careful and conscientious person doing it has meant a great deal to me and will result in an up-to-date Christian Fiction section for the many people who use it.
Caught in the Act
Volunteer with Cool Aid Society
by Fringina Mukaga, Communications
We are bombarded with an image of today’s youth that portrays them as lazy, apathetic and only interested in portable screens. It is safe to assume that based on this image, volunteerism would rank low on the totem pole of their interests. Here is one youth in Grande Prairie that challenges this stereotype: Meet Griffin Fischer, a 16 year old high school student, active volunteer and advocate for community involvement.
