Learn how you can volunteer:ART GOES TO SCHOOL
This is an art enrichment program where prior teaching or art experience is not necessary. Art Goes to School provides full orientation to prepare volunteers.

Volunteers may help out during their children’s regularly-scheduled library sessions (especially in grades K-2). Students get more attention and guidance in book selection, and parents enjoy seeing their children’s classes. Parents may also stop in as they have time to re-shelve books or “read” the shelves, and help is especially needed during our book fair.
