Did you know that Wisconsin ranks third among the states in volunteerism?
According to the Corporation for National and Community Service, our state boasts 1,630,800 volunteers who have donated more than 169 million hours in the last year alone. We are so fortunate to live in a state with an enormous amount of community kindness and we certainly see this demonstrated by our volunteers throughout the Coulee Region.
Volunteering is a perfect way to be welcomed as active members of a community, and the La Crosse Public Library would like to thank Viterbo’s Center for Community Engagement for offering volunteer assistance to our newest community volunteers with their “Service Saturday” initiative.
After their move in day, Viterbo freshmen were given an opportunity to give back to the community. On Orientation Weekend, the library hosted six students who collectively helped to inventory 4,000 items in our adult nonfiction collection – a huge task that was greatly appreciated.
We’d like to extend our gratitude to Viterbo University and our student volunteers: Thank you for your volunteer service and we look forward to seeing you the next time you visit the library.
