Volunteens are invaluable in helping make our library a special place and they have a great time doing it!

  • Leading To Reading – help kids improve literacy by reading with them
  • Lending a hand with art activities and craft times at special events
  • Recommending Good Reads for other teens.
  • Sometimes we just get together to chat & come up with ideas and plans.
