Supporting Your Library

How to get involved!

Volunteering

In order to be a library volunteer, you have to be at least a 6th grader.  Currently, we have seven ladies who volunteer one morning or part of an afternoon a week; two of them are retired school librarians and one is a current elementary school teacher.  These ladies are wonderful and a great help to our staff!  We also have three students who volunteer one-hour per week.

Sometimes, we have students who need community service hours for National Honor Society or some other school-related reason; they come in and help out by bundling magazines, shelving materials, and other tasks.

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library are another group of volunteers that help the library by helping with our on-going as well as bi-annual book sales.  Some staff the book sale, itself, and work as cashiers.  Others sort the donations into categories and box them until the sale date or help set-up the room for the sale.
Interested in becoming a volunteer, stop by the Library or call us:  618-498-9514!
