Dorothy Alling Memorial Library, your home for lifelong learning
Switch off the phone, computer and TV. Come try the new coloring book trend that is helping adults. Benefit from the quiet zen that a coloring session can bring. Books and color pencils are provided. This adult program will be held on Saturday, June 11 from 11-12:30 pm. No registration required.
Book Sale Volunteers Needed
The 4th of July book sale is just around the corner. It's time for book sale volunteers to sign up. We have several different options of time commitment and physical requirements to consider.
We need book sorters if you are able to do longer term volunteering with flexible hours. We begin collecting books for the sale on May 31. We need assistance sorting through donations, organizing them into categories and re-boxing them for short-term storage before the sale. Once you have been trained, this job can be done at any hour the library is one (Mon, Wed 10 am - 8 pm; Tue, Thu, Fri 10 am - 6 pm; Sat 10 am - 1 pm). This would involve some lifting, but on a much smaller scale of single boxes as you sort. This is a perfect job for those who will be away on the sale dates.
For shorter term volunteering we have several options. You could do any variety of these along with sorting. We generally ask for a minimum of two hour shifts.
