Volunteers are a very important part of the work we do here at the library. Their talents and energy make the library a better place to read, explore, and learn. Volunteers work in all areas of the library - in 2000, volunteers provided 1400 hours of their time. If you are interested in volunteering, contact Elizabeth Beach at (573) 634-6064 ext. 261.
