The Friends of the Madison Public Library are pleased to formally announce that Mary Ann Allexi has agreed to take on the responsibility of coordinating volunteers in our book store – replacing Lynn Bucher. “Allexi” came to us through the Dane County TimeBank in the summer of 2009. She spent several months as a volunteer sales clerk learning about the store and our organization and has recently volunteered to take on the work of recruiting, training, and scheduling volunteer sales clerks. She has implemented a process for interviewing applicants and has already found new volunteers and expanded the store hours. The Friends organization and the library are fortunate to have Allexi “on board” in this new capacity and we welcome and thank her for her willingness to provide this very critical volunteer service.
