    Do you have access to empty 10-ream copy paper boxes and lids? We’d love to have them for packing up our book donations.  You can leave them on the donation carts at the Book Nook just inside the library entrance.

  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 morsefriendsvol@gmail.com. (We’re a membership-based nonprofit, and dues are an important part of our fundraising effort.) – Terri Evans, President
