Volunteers - Please Help Staff your Library!
Volunteers are needed to staff the library. Duties include opening and closing
the library, answering the phone, and helping walk-in patrons find the materials
they want. New volunteers are paired with an experienced volunteer to learn the
ropes. No experience is necessary. Please consider regularly giving a few hours
each month. Check the Volunteer Calendar
below. Thanks! We can't do it without you!
