Our Volunteers Rock!

volunteer thank you

We couldn’t do it without our volunteers. Literally!

Just look at the numbers. Our 48 volunteers outnumber library staff, putting in over 3,000 amazing hours each year.

Our volunteers do a little bit of everything. They present story-times, clean books and dvd’s, shelve material, lead book clubs, arrange and rearrange the library for programs, sort our book delivery among other tasks.
