Our first big fundraiser will be a book sale on Saturday, May 14, Love Your
Library Day. We need volunteers to help out on the day of the sale, please
follow this link to find out more
details and volunteer. The library already has donated books to sell but we
are soliciting additional donations of gently used books, feel free to drop
them at the library and the staff will direct you where to leave them. Our
goal for this event is to raise funds to buy new, low shelving and other
items for the children’s area – the staff has told us that this would be so
much more user friendly for young readers.
