Weeders Wanted!

Yes, I know you are all up to your necks in weeds already, but would anyone have time to help with the weeding at the Library? The west side gardens are very well maintained by Newfane Garden Club. The east side island and south hedges, however, are overgrown and need some trimming and weeding. Please contact the Librarian if you would like to volunteer your time. Thank you!

Wish List

From time to time, I will list various Library needs in order to help people determine how they can best donate to our wonderful Library. Please contact me if you want any further information.
For now, we are in need of a paper cutter, construction paper for children’s craft projects, small computer speakers and copy paper in varied colors. Thanks!
