National Volunteer Week was last week, April 23 — April 29, and at the library we are very fortunate to have some wonderful volunteers that contribute to our success. Volunteers help in different ways beginning with the Morris Public Library Board. The people that make up our Library make sure the community's needs and interests are paramount to how our library operates and serves the community. The Friends of the Library extend our library's capacity through dollar gifts, volunteer and program support, and through advocacy.

McKenna Ahrenholz has spent a good portion of her life looking out for her siblings. Recently, she's spent a good portion of her days helping fellow and future foster kids have a better path through the system. According to copies of court records, Ahrenholz, 12, spent years shuffling through inadequate parental care, and through a foster system until one day she discovered she had a right to a lawyer. But no one ever told her that. Ahrenholz knew that was wrong. What child is going to know they can have a lawyer?
Rachel Dudding and Rick Wocken, both of St. Cloud, are happy to announce their engagement.
The music was her almost constant companion. "As I went through the day I definitely had the music in my head," University of Minnesota Morris senior Anne Ternes said. "It was always present. Parts of the opera were always playing in my head." The music is the miniature opera composed by Ternes for her senior recital project at UMM. Ternes conducted a performance of "Miriam" (Miriame) last month. She is one of the roughly 370 seniors who will receive degrees at the May 13 graduation.
