'Super volunteer' honored at Brodsky Library

ST. LOUIS - When you think of libraries of course good old fashioned, hard covered books come to mind.

At the Saul Brodsky Jewish Community Library much of the work is being done on computers, and by a very special young man. On Thursday Sam Lyss was honored as the library's "super volunteer."

The 26-year-old has autism, and requires one-on-one supervision. Sam only communicates through sign language and typing, and that's where his skills really help. He's worked at the library, creating data bases, since 2010.

This isn't Sam's only job. He has nine volunteer jobs that keep him busy every day.
