Volunteer Appreciation Reception

Mark April 12th from 2 to 4 pm on your calendar to drop by the Haltom City Public Library and hob knob with those special people who contribute so much to the fantastic programs sponsored by the Library.  Light refreshments will be provided and much lively conversation will occur.  Many volunteers come to work and support the Library and their most wonderful employees, but rarely get a chance to stop working long enough to get to know fellow volunteers.  This is one of those special times where we can share experiences and laugh together.  And, if our citizens like the special and the regular programs of the Library, this is a time to pat the backs of some of those who make it happen.
