The spirit of community service was evident this past week as volunteers from Credo Reference made their second visit to the Curley Upper School Library. Credo volunteers made the return trip to the library to finish inputting records into the automated catalog and organizing and shelving the library’s books. Earlier in the fall, Credo, working through Boston Cares, arranged a half-day volunteer session at the school to work on this project. Since the work of adding records into the automation system for a large number of library books is a time consuming project, Credo Reference employees generously offered to return for a second day of work to complete the project. The company’s commitment to this community service project was also evident by the large percentage of Credo employees that were on hand to help out. Thanks to their diligent work, the Curley online catalog is now available for students and staff to use for both looking up books in the library’s collection and circulating books for home use. Thank you to the entire Credo Reference team for your dedication and effort in providing this valuable resource to the Curley School community.
