  • We rent storage space and store the donated books until the sales
  • We set up and support our annual book sales
  • We offer grant support to the Library
  • We host a Holiday Tea as a community-building event for all ages
  • We meet the second Tuesday of each month, 5:30 - 7:30 pm in Library 2nd floor Conference Room. Come and be a part of our endeavors.
