We started loading software on our new computers today, thanks for volunteering your time Peter Hike!
We have two big programs this month, Gingerbread Library Decorating and The Night Before the Night Before Christmas, but meanwhile we are buzzing around getting things ready to open.
They won't be perfect, but we'll open January 8th.
Our new hours will be Tuesday and Thursday from 3 to 6pm.
CAN YOU HELP?
If we get 10 neighbors to volunteer, that means just one shift of three hours per month. Remember, we are an all volunteer library. Step up and join in, no experience required. e mail firstname.lastname@example.org

Library Volunteer & Trustee Meeting - Thursday Dec. 5th at 6pm
It may seem like progress is slow, but our all volunteer library is getting things done. Our volunteers have put all our recycled shelves in place and safely secured them to the walls, added casters to our low shelves so they can be moved aside for program space, designed new signage, researched and purchased new inexpensive software to catalog books, applied for grants to provide internet service, and done Black Friday shopping to purchase 2 computers for the library. All this while programs including our Halloween book give away, candy drop, and Christmas programs are under way. Did I mention that we are ALL volunteer? Can you pitch in?
What YOU can do:
- Come to our meetings and get involved. Click here for his week's agenda.
- Volunteer to for shifts when the library is open (starting soon Tuesdays & Thursdays 3 to 6pm). We will train you.
- Help us catalog and shelve books. Let us know if you are interested, we'll set up a work schedule.
- Have an interest you'd like to share? Start a book club, do a cooking demo, run a kids program.
- Tell your friends and neighbors about us, and encourage them to get involved.
PROGRESS! Today Cheryl White and Roy Hopgood dropped off our new computers. They were our super shoppers and found us Black Friday deals saving us about 40%! Thank you Cheryl and Roy.
ALSO thank you Karen, Bruce, Richard, Tyler and others for getting the shelves assembled and safely secured. All our kid's bookshelves are now on casters so we can move them aside for program space!
That's how our 100% volunteer library works.
We're open! Come in and see YOUR new library.
