"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"
- Pete Seeger, in YES! Magazine

Volunteering at the Library

The project:
Reshelving books at the community library.

10 minutes

Why bother?
We're out of town this weekend, but the community we're visiting has a FANTASTIC community library with a wonderful librarian. The library's volunteer corps includes a LOT of local residents. The librarian welcomes all able help. The return cart was packed today, so we reshelved the kids' section.

Worth it?
We'd do just about anything for this library and its librarian. Wish we could have done more!
