Library celebrating National Volunteer Week

The Jackson County Public Library will celebrate National Volunteer Week from April 18 to 24.

The library appreciates everyone who has volunteered their time and service from April 2019 to March 2021, according to a news release from Library Director Julia Aker. Volunteers not only enhance library staff. They benefit library customers through their service.

The library also thanks current and former Friends of the Jackson County Public Library board members Teddi Ashcraft, Jim Daily, Joyce Fouts, Sandi Hall, Linda Jacobsen, Diane Kemling, Lori McDonald, Billie Richardson and January Rutherford as well as the many Friends members who have volunteered for the Book Nook, bimonthly book sales and Oktoberfest parking.

Volunteer opportunities at the libraries in Seymour, Crothersville and Medora include assisting with library programs, cleanup projects, including both materials and technology devices, working on databases and scanning and digitizing photos. Details on the various opportunities are available online at

Anyone 13 or older may fill out an application to become a library volunteer. Applications are available at all library locations or online at
