Spotlight on Volunteers
Shelagh and Dick Davis

  Shelagh was director of the BDL (1985-1989) when she met Dick Davis at a Brighton Historical Society meeting. They have been working together on community projects ever since, including serving as chief organizers of the Brighton Fourth of July parade for ten years.
  Volunteering at the BDL was a natural next step for the couple. Knowing the importance of keeping the Library collection current and in order, Shelagh became a volunteer shelf reader extraordinaire. She assists the staff for 8-10 hours each week, performing a job that requires meticulous inspection.  Dick cleans and repairs CDs and DVDs in a lengthy six-step process saving the Library replacement costs of the items and quickly returning them to circulation. Both jobs are critical to maintaining our high quality collection.
  Hats off to the Davises and all of our dedicated volunteers! If you are interested in volunteering at the Library, please stop in or fill out an application online.
