Andrew Ouellette, a 15 year-old Burlington resident, spent this past spring volunteering to work at the Burlington Little League “snack shack” on Library Lane. With his Mom’s help he purchased and stocked the shack with beverages and snacks, then volunteered over fifty hours selling these items to players and fans who attended the games. Andrew carefully kept track of all his expenditures and daily sales. By the end of the season he had made a profit of $700.00.

Giving to the community is important to the Ouellette family so Andrew chose to split his profits and give $350 to the Burlington Friends of the Library and $350 to the Burlington Food Bank. Andrew, who is also volunteering to help out at the library this summer, has decided that his donation will go towards outfitting the new Teen Room. The expansion is expected to be complete by 2017.

We are extremely proud to have Andrew as part of our community and very happy that he has chosen the public library to show his appreciation and support.
