Mary Spurgeon of Scottsboro Senior Center serves as volunteer librarian.

She managed a successful book sale by herself, with proceeds totaling $70, the most ever made from a book sale.
Spurgeon begin volunteering at the Scottsboro Senior Center soon after it opened in 2007. In 2010 she became the official Librarian. When she started, there was only one bookcase and two shelves of books. Today there are three bookcases with fives shelves of books each.
The first book was checked out on May 6, 2010 by Doris Jones, and the second by Mary Lou Bell. Presently, 1431 books have been checked out over a period of over eight years.
In trying to decide which books to put out for sale, Spurgeon decided to see how many books she had checked out and read. She discovered she’d read a total of 122 books. She decided to dig a little further and see who had read the most. Jean Stenson, a regular center participant, had read 307 books.
Spurgeon is a very dedicated volunteer, averaging five to six hours a day keeping the books organized and logged. Twice per year she has a book sale to benefit the Senior Center. She takes the books that aren’t sold at the Senior Center sale and sets up a booth at other sales.
Spurgeon also has a co-volunteer, Roberta Garwood. Unfortunately this year Garwood was unable to help with the book sale. Spurgeon manned the two week book sales alone, working an average of eight hours each day.
Spurgeon said that she’d like to thank everyone that has donated books, purchased books or checked out books. The circulation of books keeps the Senior Center library viable.
