Mary Frey - July 2019 Volunteer Highlight

"Unselfish and noble actions are the most radiant pages in the biography of souls."

~David Thomas, as quoted in Tryon Edwards, A Dictionary of Thoughts, 1891





We know and love her as "Mother Mary", one of Resale Depot's many dedicated volunteers. Mary Frey has a full life; married to Ken for 42 years with two married children and four grandchildren. After working as a librarian for 29 years, Mary became a weekly Resale Depot volunteer in her retirement. Why? "It's the next best thing ever to be here!" Mary knows that every reader is unique, and she loves helping guests find just the right books to fit their reading needs. "I like organizing, talking with people and helping them. I love volunteering here because I get to meet new people all the time." Mary takes pride in her work and is very knowledgeable about literature - a valuable skill that fuels Resale Depot's book department. We deeply appreciate Mary's dedication, joyful attitude, cheery smile, and cookies! Thank you Mary!
