The heart of the Library Foundation and Friends are the volunteers who staff the bookstore, sort incoming donated materials and run the Saturday sales. If you are interested in volunteering for a great organization and meeting a lot of fun people while doing a great thing for your community, contact or complete the form below and we’ll send you more information.
