End of the year library helpers needed

Posted May 16, 2016 | Category: Uncategorized

Summer is right around the corner which means that all library books will need to be returned by May 26th. Since all the books will be arriving next week, we could use some extra helpers to shelve books and also to help with reading the shelves (making sure all the books that are on the shelves are in the correct order).

If you are interested in helping, please contact Debbie at deb.kummer@sbcglobal.net or at 708-263-7646.

Thank you!
