Kathleen Stensing 

We appreciate the hard work of our volunteers and wish to show our appreciation by featuring you and your volunteer story. Thank you for everything you do!

Kathleen (Kathy) started volunteering because she says: “I was a children’s librarian for 30 years at a public library in Illinois and I loved my job. After we moved to Citrus County I wanted to find out more about our library and volunteering was a great way to do that!”

We asked her if volunteering has changed the way she sees the library: “Not really…I have always known that the staff at public libraries are hardworking and fun people and the budgets have to stretch a long way.”

One of her favorite volunteer moments is: “Over the 6.5 years I’ve volunteered, I’ve met 2 great friends. We socialize outside of the library and I would never had met them if it hadn’t been for volunteering.”

Kathy encourages anyone who would like to volunteer: “It’s a great feeling being able to give back to our community. I also enjoy the camaraderie between the staff and my fellow volunteers.”
