Follow That Story in Denver

Bob Cox spotted a Denver Westword Story on the Friends of Denver Public Library.
Members of the Denver Library Commission got an earful from Denver Public Library volunteers last week, when twenty of them showed up at a commission meeting to express their anger over the way they have been treated by library management.

One former volunteer of the year, Rose Keating, was in tears as she described the hostile environment many of the volunteer docents face. "It's hard to walk in when you're growled at and not appreciated," Keating told the commissioners. "Treat us like human beings; you're not giving us any money. This is too good an establishment to let it go to hell."

Welcome to the world of a lot of library employees

Ha! If it's that bad for the volunteers, then imagine what it's like for the staff...but because they are terrified, like most library staff, they won't come forth to say anything, no matter how bad the treatment.
