Support Our Library

There are several ways in which you can help improve and implement library services and programs.


  • Consider volunteering to help with  projects such as children's programs and open houses. 
  • Volunteer to make treats, prepare craft materials, or make displays.
  • Volunteer for an outreach program, such as the one that delivers books to MapleCrest Manor and Assisted Living.
  • If you have time to volunteer on a regular basis, choose a section of the library that interests you and spend 15 to 30 minutes a week straightening the shelves and seeing that the titles are in correct order.  By "adopting a shelf", you help others more easily find what they need.
  • You may also supplement the materials budget by making gifts in memory or in honor of a friend or family member.  The library has a regular line item in the budget for donations.  You may request a certain type of book or title to be placed in the collection.  If you wish, a book plate will be designed to recognize your gift.
  • Become a Friend of the Library.
