Volunteer Luncheon 2012

Library staff and the Friends of Freeman recently held our annual volunteer luncheon, where we recognized our wonderful, irreplaceable volunteers, such as these pictured above, with mock paycheck certificates.  All in all, our volunteers' combined efforts at Freeman Library for the previous fiscal year were valued at nearly $200,000!  What a contribution!  If you would like to be a part of a group that both loves the library and enjoys freely giving back to the community, become a volunteer today!

Check out our early literacy tables!

 Want to know about the new hang-out spot in the Children's Department?  We now have three tables dedicated to early literacy skills.  Children's librarian Elizabeth Hunt created these tables after attending the Public Library Association's convention recently.  She developed these tables to help parents encourage early literacy skills.  It looks like she succeeded. These tables have become very popular with families.

Join Friends of Freeman!

What is one of the best ways you can support library?  By joining the Friends of Freeman Library!  This generous and indispensable group loves the library so much that they freely give of their time to raise funds for our programs, collections, and services.  One of the  ways they do this is through the bookstore immediately to your right as soon as you walk in the front doors of the library.  They also accept other donations from the public on behalf of the library and volunteer their assistance with a variety of jobs throughout our departments.
