For the past 20 years, Carol Cruse has dedicated her time to volunteering at the Hervey Bay Citizens Centre library. Her decision to volunteer stemmed from a sense of duty and a recognition of the need for assistance in the library.

Throughout her volunteer journey, Carol has cherished the supportive community of fellow volunteers and the opportunity to give back to them as they have supported her in the past.

One particular aspect of Carol’s volunteering experience that stands out is the diverse range of books and the joy of promoting reading to library visitors. This diversity has enriched her volunteer journey and shaped her perspective on the importance of literature in people’s lives.

As she reflects on her volunteer journey, Carol encourages others to take the step and experience the fulfillment that volunteering brings. The sense of satisfaction and well-being that follows volunteering is something she believes everyone should experience.
