Volunteer Opportunities

The library space indoors is changing. There are shelves dedicated for learning to read and another for new readers. I would like empty tissue boxes, which will keep these books propped at the front of their shelves. Please leave your donations at the front office.

Thank you!
Jodie Purcell, Northgate Elementary Librarian
