Ways of Giving



The Library's successful operation each year depends on the commitment and generosity of an outstanding cadre of volunteers!

From our accomplished Board of Trustees to the teenagers and retirees who perform exemplary community service, all our volunteers are a valued part of our library family.

The Library's Volunteer Chair would be happy to work with you to find a volunteer role that accommodates your schedule and matches your area of interest. Specific volunteer opportunities are listed below, some with e-mail contacts; if no contact is provided please and we'll have our Volunteer Chair connect you with the appropriate person.
