We welcome anyone who can do every Saturday, or every other Saturday.  The Library is open 9-1.  Generally our volunteers come for 1 - 2 hours per shift. 

This is a great way to support your library, give back to the community, and even have something to put on your resume!  Students over age 15 are welcome too. If you are interested, please message here or call the Library at 849-2420 and speak to Debbie or
