Book Store in the Library
We have an on-going, volunteer-driven book sale. Stop by during library hours and find books, videos and audios on a variety of topics priced from $.25 to $3.00. These books are great as gifts, personal reading or home décor.
Our volunteer-run Book Store brings in over $20,000 of much needed operating dollars. Cleaning house? Moving? Making room for new books? We gladly welcome your tax-deductible donations. Please bring them to the back entrance. We will gladly provide you with a receipt for tax purposes. Please call ahead if you need assistance with a particularly large donation.
The Library receives the majority of its funding from public sources. Your voice is needed to ensure that the Library remains strong. Contact your elected officials and the media to tell them how much the library is worth to you. Encourage your family and friends to become patrons of the library.

Summer Volunteer Opportunity
Children’s Programming: Do you love to work with children? We are looking for enthusiastic and reliable juniors or seniors to lead a weekly Music & Movement program. This program would be on Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. outside in the library’s reading garden (weather permitting.) The Music & Movement class would include leading the children in songs, games, simple obstacle courses, and other fun outdoor activities. We have equipment that includes a small parachute, tunnel, jump ropes, hula hoops, ball pit, and a water table. Planning and implementing the program would be the responsibility of the volunteer. Program should be 45 minutes long. Children will be from ages 2-6. Some experience working with small children preferred. Clearances are needed.
