We’re celebrating National Volunteer Week with profiles of some our amazing volunteers!

Maddie Fielding is one amazing teen. She’s been volunteering with us here at the library for more than three years, and cheerfully tackles any task we give her.

If you’ve been to any of our major public events, you’ve probably seen her smiling face: she’s helped out at Kidspark, Family Literacy Day, and the Word on the Street Festival, and our community Kids’ Clubs.

She also comes to Central Library every week, where she offers administrative support, helping out our volunteer services department and supporting children’s programs.

Maddie is also a dedicated volunteer and community member in many other areas: she’s a member of the YMCA Leadership Core, a volunteer with a breakfast program at a local school, an athlete and an excellent student at Bluevale Collegiate Institute. Last summer, she helped to build a school in Kenya with Free the Children, and she is currently working toward earning a Duke of Edinburgh Award, and won a Kitchener Youth Action Council award in 2014.

Thanks for all your hard work, Maddie!
