Clare Howley has been a teen volunteer with Sacramento Public Library for four years, serving two years as the president of the North Natomas Library Teen Advisory Board. In that time, she has moved mountains — planning program after program, pulling in 30-70 fellow teens for each event. She also helped kids gain an enthusiasm for reading by serving as a summer outreach ambassador to school kids and at Councilwoman Angelique Ashby’s Summer of Fun
While celebrating her achievements at a recent Authority Board meeting, Clare shared why she was so passionate about volunteering at the Library. Watch her moving statement below
, one that moved Councilwoman Ashby to conclude the recognition portion of the meeting with these motivating words: “You fit in and are exactly where you are meant to be.”
Clare is pictured with another celebrated volunteer, Immanuel Hargrave. We'll share his story in August.
