Welcome New Volunteer Services Team Members!

DCL Volunteer Services is thrilled to welcome two new Branch Volunteer Coordinators: Nancy Johnson at our Castle Rock – Philip S. Miller and Louviers branches, and Margaret O’Connor in Parker.

Nancy Johnson joined DCL in March.

Nancy recently moved from Florida to Larkspur because of her husband’s job. She previously held positions as a library assistant, receptionist, volunteer coordinator, and bookkeeper. She was also employed as a director of community engagement and chief administrator at two churches in Florida. In each of those positions, she recruited, trained and supported volunteers.

“I have worked in a library for most of my career. I have always loved the passion that library staff and volunteers have for the community. In addition, I have always had a passion for volunteering, and I volunteer with my church and the Red Cross,” Nancy said.

“At Douglas County Libraries volunteers are an integral part of the library, assisting with camps, blood drives, birthday parties, tutoring, and everyday activities in the library processes like shelving, curbside delivery, and running the bookstore. Volunteers are amazing!”

Margaret O’Connor has been with DCL since July.

Margaret is a seasoned volunteer coordinator, coming to DCL from Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) at Castlewood Canyon State Park. In her position there, she managed all aspects of the volunteer program, with more than 200 volunteers. Margaret is thrilled to get started at DCL. She currently resides in Franktown with her family.

“I joined DCL to follow my desire to be engaged with my immediate community and to be part of an organization that embraces continuous improvement. As an active volunteer with both Colorado Parks and Wildlife and Dumb Friends League, I appreciate the important role volunteerism plays in our sense of value within our community. I look forward to ensuring the volunteer department at DCL is an important part of the organization’s growth and success,” said Margaret.

“I am a CPW-trained Volunteer Naturalist and love hiking and enjoying the outdoors with my family and friends. I have a high level of compassion for animals, both domestic and wildlife, and a strong sense of responsibility toward others.”
