Peter has been a volunteer with CPL since 2000 over the years he has worked in a variety of volunteer roles:
"I was taken aback at the variety of the programs that volunteers are involved in at the library. I had been a volunteer literacy tutor with Bow Valley College for 10 years, when I decided that the Reading Advantage programme, working out of the Village Square branch, would be much closer to where I live. (So that makes over 20 years being involved in adult literacy).
I find that I am most buoyed when I can see direct results from my volunteering. This certainly has been the case with the Reading Advantage programme, where I know the programme has made life-long differences in others' lives.
As well as having volunteered with the Reading Advantage programme, I've been a Proctor for those sitting distance learning exams. Currently I'm involved with the Art Walks and Homebound Readers programmes.
There's always something new to volunteer for at the library!"
Thank you Peter, for being interested in trying new things and finding new ways to help your community.
