Congratulations to Morteza Yousefian on passing his U.S. Citizenship test and becoming a new U.S. Citizen!
Morteza (Mori) started volunteering at the Joyce Ellington Branch Library back in 2009 as an ESL Conversation Club Tutor. Shortly afterwards, he moved away from our area to attend school. Then, he returned on September 2011 to become a member of the Friends of the Joyce Ellington Library. Ever since then, he volunteers by coming in 2 to 3 times a week by helping to maintain the Friends Bookstore by sorting book donations and restocking shelves. He also helps with the Friends Booksale events at Joyce Ellington Branch Booksale with setup and other duties.
Every time that Mori comes in, he always greets the library staff with a friendly smile.
Morteza is a great example of what it means to volunteer and give back to your community, especially a community that has adopted him.
To celebrate the spirit of our country's upcoming Independence celebration, let's acknowledge and thank Mori (Morteza Yousefian) and his contributions as a volunteer at the Joyce Ellington Branch Library!
