In 1985, the United Nations General Assembly established International Volunteer Day (IVD) to commemorate the contributions and dedication of volunteers worldwide. Today, IVD is celebrated globally, by volunteers, voluntary organizations and by all those who benefit directly from the endless help of the volunteer.
In the last year our close to 1800 Calgary Public Library volunteers contributed over 38,000 hours to improving literacy, computer skills, language skills, career development and more for thousands of Calgarians.
Thank you to all the volunteers who donated their time to helping their fellow Calgarians at the Library!
