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.

Donate Books

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.

DIY Digitization Lab Volunteer

Do you like technology? Are you a history or genealogy buff? If you answered yes, then the library needs your help!

The Cooper-Siegel Community Library is seeking volunteers for our new DIY Digitization Lab where people can come to digitize their old photos, slides, documents, videos and audio recordings.

We are looking for tech savvy people who are committed to superb customer service to assist others with the digitization equipment and to answer questions during two-hour appointments. Full training on the equipment will be provided. There will be daytime, evening and weekend opportunities available in the Lab.

If you are interested in being considered for this opportunity, please complete our Volunteer Application and send it to Jill McConnell at mcconnellj@einetwork.net
