Mary Beth Sinks, Volunteer of the MonthVolunteer of the Month: March

Mary Beth Sinks

Mary Beth has been volunteering since November 2013 at the Mary D. Pretlow Anchor Branch Library at the circulation desk in the children’s department on Sundays. Since Sundays are a very busy day at Pretlow, her help has been invaluable as she assists staff with customer service and circulation duties. Mary Beth has been so calm and helpful on an extremely busy day for us, especially with children and their parents. She is considered part of our staff at Pretlow and has even been placed on the library's schedule.

While living in Tarpon Springs, Florida, Mary Beth was a member and president of the Board of Trustees of Tarpon Springs Public Library. She is also a lifetime member of the Friends of the Tarpon Springs Library. She was in charge of the English Department of Upper Darby High School in PA and has also taught high school and middle school art.

The Norfolk Public Library appreciates Mary Beth’s dedication to the library volunteer program. The “Volunteer of the Month” receives a $10.00 gift card to Barnes and Noble and well as a Certificate of Appreciation.
