Several library volunteers were honored at Wadena City Library's first recognition event Monday, and branch manager Renee Frethem said there is always room for more helpers.


Volunteers put in around 12 hours per week in the building, not including any research they may do at home, she said.

Library assistant Laura Spilman said volunteers do a variety of tasks, which include assisting with storytime, keeping shelves organized and helping out with other behind-the-scenes work.
