VOLUNTEERS & FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
Volunteers at the library play a number of important roles. Not only the formal volunteers, The Friends of the Library and the Library Board of Trustees, who work hard to raise funds in support of books and programs and oversee the library, but also individuals who help with day-to-day operations and other projects, are keeping the library community vibrant and healthy.
We have several circulation desk volunteers who are here every week helping out, and other folks who regularly assist with story time and book cataloging, as well as other occasional helpers who pitch in for special events. Special thanks goes out to Emily Rappold for her creation of a mini replica of the library building for Old Home Day! And thanks, also to Greg Warner for his on-going web site support. We're always grateful for folks willing to be trained to substitute for the librarian when she is away at trainings and collaboration meetings, etc.
Please don't hesitate to add your name to the volunteer list.
If you have a new idea about something you can do for the library, or would like to present a program, we encourage you to stop by, email or call. firstname.lastname@example.org 454-8504
Friends of the Library
The Friends meet on the 4th Monday of each month at 6:30 and sponsor fundraising events such as the Spring Plant and Book Sale and the Holiday Bazaar. Funds are used for library programs throughout the year, buying new books, the Master Gardener program and the purchase of project supplies. One and all are invited to join this group. You can donate time or services to suit your schedule and dues are only $5 per year. For information call librarian Loona Brogan, 802-454-8504. The Friends' current goals are to support the library by building membership and selling their cookbook, "Cooking with Friends." This is a community cookbook available at the library for a reduced price of $8! It was inspired by the 1934 Mother's Club Cookbook and has many of the recipes that originally appeared there. In addition there are family recipes from current Plainfield folks. All proceeds go toward new books for the library's growing collection.
