All volunteers are urged to attend one of the 2018 Volunteer Workshops:
Tuesday, September 18th from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. or Friday, September 21st from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Brenda will review procedures, answer questions and show you a few new initiatives we've done. We hope you can attend one of these as it's important to know what is going on. If you are unable to attend, please let Brenda know. It is hoped that your partner on your shift will attend and then explain everything to you.

We are always looking for new volunteers who would like to join us. If you would like to try it before you decide, we would love to work with you. No pressure at all. It is 3 hours per month. We do have a good time and appreciate all the volunteers we have. Volunteering is a great way to make friends and become a part of the community.
3-hour weekly shifts: Tuesdays from 10 to 1 and 1 to 4; Fridays from 10 to 1 and Saturdays from 1 to 4.
If the schedule comes out and the dates that you'd like to volunteer are already filled, by all means, come anyway. The more the merrier. Most of the volunteers work the same days of each month - but you are always welcome to join them. There's always something to do at the library, even if it's just tidying up the shelves or visiting and having a cup of tea.
