Others Way to Support the Library

Besides shopping on Amazon, you can support the library is specific ways.

1.  Donate your time

You can volunteer a couple of hours a week or a month. The tasks usually done by volunteers are checking books in and out to patrons, re-shelving books, checking for duplicates.  You would also be an ambassador of good will by providing positive customer service.  You might also help by cutting out Storytime items or helping to prepare for this weekly activity.

 We need people we can count on.  However, we cannot at this time accept court-appointed community hours.  We do have limited volunteer opportunities for National Honor Society student.  Come in and talk with the library director.
