Book donations are gratefully accepted at the Sawmill Road Library (Wed-Fri 9am-3pm). You can also donate small amounts of books at bookmobile stops. We may add some donated books to our collections, and others will be sold to help fund our services.



The Traveling Library is a community resource and a community effort — we depend on volunteers. Here are several opportunities to help!

Bookmobile Volunteer
Ride along on the bookmobile and help check books out and reshelve them. Typically this is a 5-8 hour weekday commitment and we hope you can be a regular volunteer at least once per month. A lot of fun!

Sawmill Road Library Volunteer
Help us keep the Sawmill Road Library open for people to return books and browse our large collection there. Check out and re-shelve books as needed. Great opportunity to get some reading done while providing a community service! Shifts are 9am-12pm and 12-3pm Mon, Tue, Thu. and we hope you can make at least a weekly commitment of one shift.

Collections Volunteer
If you are great at detail-oriented projects, we could use your help wrapping books in protective coverings and keeping our collections in good order on the shelves. If you have good computer skills, we can use help with updating online catalog records as well. A perfect opportunity for people who don’t necessarily love working with people! This work can be done on your schedule between 9am-3pm Mon-Fri. We hope for a 3 hour weekly commitment.

Books on Wheels Volunteer
Some residents of our county are homebound or live in nursing homes. They would love a friendly visit from a volunteer who can help them get books to read. A visit once a month can make a big difference for a neighbor in need! We hope each volunteer can make a commitment of 1-2 visits per month. We will train you.
