  1. Hi, I am interested in working as a volunteer at the library. I am a retired lawyer/homemaker who has patronized the library for years. Please let me know if you are looking for helpers! Holly Glidden

    • Holly, I can’t speak for the library, which may have its own volunteer pool, but we’d love to have you as a member of the Friends and a Friends volunteer. You can pick up a membership form at the Friends’ Book Nook in the library lobby and indicate that you’d like to volunteer. You can also join on the website and then email (We’re a membership-based nonprofit, and dues are an important part of our fundraising effort.) – Terri Evans, President
