The library and the Friends of the Library need volunteers for several upcoming projects.
During the week of Feb. 6 the library will conduct a customer service survey. We need volunteers to set at a table just inside the main entrance and hand surveys to all who enter.
Those who fill out the survey will receive a small token of our thanks in the form of a chocolate kiss. Volunteers can help themselves to the goodies so it's a sweet deal. We need volunteers from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday, Feb. 6 through Thursday, Feb. 9 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 10 and Saturday, Feb. 11. Volunteers can contact Nancy Studebaker at (269) 683-8545 x3322.
On Valentine's Day the Friends will be hosting the library's third annual romance book give-a-way. We need volunteers throughout the day to help us with this fun event. Volunteers keep the romance paperback stocked for patrons who play games of chance to determine how many books they win. Volunteers can contact Darlene Jackson at 269 683 8545 x4.
The Friends hold two book sales each year and always need volunteers during the months between the sales as well as on sales day. Throughout the year volunteers help to sort the books which are donated to the library.
On sales days the volunteers help sort and straighten books and check-out customers. The next public book sale will be Saturday, April 8 but volunteers are needed now. Volunteers can contact Darlene Jackson at 269 683 8545 x4.
