We Need Your Help!

A note from our president on August 3rd:

Thank you to all people who have already signed up to volunteer for needed positions during the Fall Book Sale, the response has been wonderful and is greatly appreciated. The weekend of 06 and 07 September has almost all needed positions filled, but there is still a need for many positions during the second weekend (13 and 14 September) as well as during the Box Day sale on Saturday 21 September. Any amount of time you can offer is greatly appreciated. If you are interested, please go to our website at FOTL.info and utilize the link to our Sign Up Genius to select the position and shift you are able to help

Become a Branch Friends of the Library Representative

Are you a Friends of the Library member? Do you attend any of the great programs put on by your local library branch? Does providing a service to the library simply by attending appeal to you? Then consider volunteering at your local branch to be a Friends of the Library representative. Whenever any Henderson County Library branch hosts a program in which the presenter wishes to sell something, they are required to have a Friends of the Library member present at the program. This member does not have to do anything with the program or the selling - they simply have to be present during the time of the program.

If this appeals, then give your name and contact information to your local branch library to put on the list. If you are called and decide to go - simply show up at the appointed time, notify the librarian in charge of the program that you are there as a Friends rep, and sit back and enjoy the program.
