Volunteering with the the WFOL
The Friends are a group of people who have common interests:  we care about our library, our town and our neighbors.  At the same time, we have a wide range of interests, backgrounds and commitment levels.  Some of us get involved in everything, some take a two-hour shift at the book sale.

The Friends sponsor a variety of events that can always use an extra pair of hands - such as the annual book sale and the annual art show.

In addition, we sometimes need help with a quick legal or accounting questions, help folding and sending out a mailing or a quick proof-read of a document - Valuable help that would mean a lot to the Friends, but wouldn't be a significant commitment of time.

If you see a Friends event that interests you, please contact us!  If you find you have some extra time and want to give back to the library. please contact us!  If you have a talent you want us to be aware of fo rthe future, please contact us!

No matter your life experience, talents, or time availablity, there is a place for you with the Friends.
