The Wagnalls Memorial is looking for dedicated individuals to serve on Board of Directors or serve on various committees sharing your knowledge. Volunteer to be a ticket-taker or usher at music and theater performances. Share your knowledge, skill or talent at a library program. Volunteers are also needed to help in the library with shelving, in the garden, and with maintenance of our beautiful facilities. You can choose to volunteer for events or projects that are the most interesting to you by sharing your ideas, time, talents, and skills.
The Friends of the Wagnalls Memorial Library is a separate 501c3 charitable organization formed to support The Wagnalls Memorial. The purpose of the group is four-fold: educate the public, recruit volunteers, produce events for Wagnalls, and raise funds to support the endeavors of The Wagnalls Memorial.
Friends of the Library do this by holding used book sales throughout the year and selling concessions at the Wagnalls Community Theater shows. From these fundraisers and annual membership dues, the Friends have most recently purchased stoves for the Social Hall kitchen and new water fountain with a water bottle filler. They also support the Summer Reading Program and staff and volunteer recognition events.
To join the Friends, forms are in the Library or you can complete this form online. Membership Form
