A testament to Ron Blood’s worthiness to receive the Dottie & Henry Swartz Volunteer Excellence Award is the fact that three East Shore Area Library Departments – Circulation, Youth Services, and Reference – collaborated on his nomination. A volunteer since 2011, Ron typically works 3 days a week on a wide variety of tasks. Shelving and re-shelving, weeding and shelf-reading, pull lists and duplicates – Ron does it all with enthusiasm and a smile.
He works to keep the difficult juvenile non-fiction collection neat and orderly, a task not suited for the faint of heart. He restocks the free resources and community flyers, processes Community Collection and withdrawn books, readies library information bags for new cardholders, and shares a cheerful and positive attitude with everyone around him. He provides critical assistance to reference staff by performing microfilm searches they wouldn’t otherwise have time to do. Library staff knows that a task assigned to Ron will be done quickly and efficiently. His devotion to the mission and the people of The Library is priceless.
