From the Librarian's Shelf...
Wednesday, September 5, 2012 • Posted September 5, 2012

Hopefully, everyone had a Labor Day weekend! Speaking of labor, we have a fabulous crew of volunteers: Bob Laury, Susan Brunken, Allison Fogle, June Hall, Carol Tucker, and Mary Scholibo. If you see them, thank them for the time and effort they are giving to help us run the library efficiently. Oh, and if you are looking to volunteer somewhere, drop by—we need a book shelver and someone to train on the front desk for Thursdays!
