About Andrii Zhehestovskyi - Libraries & Information Services Dundee

Dundee Libraries nominated Andrii as Volunteer of the Year. He supports Digital Inclusion in the Opportunities Project, providing basic IT support to library customers and access to the Databank. Speaking English, Ukrainian and Russian he has been a great support to ESOL groups accessing library services and other refugees arriving in Dundee. He has also engaged with library exchange programmes (online) which encompassed libraries in Ukraine. Andrii travelled to safety in the UK last year, in order to settle here and become part of the community, he applied to volunteer. We think he deserves recognition for his outstanding contribution.
