Helping hands build a better Mesa

“I like volunteering at the library because there was a library between my home and my grade school. By the time I reached the 6th grade I had read every book a boy might read in that library. The rest of my life I have used libraries when I wanted to fix something, make something, or whatever, some library had the answer! I love libraries.”
- Jerry
