Our library is operated by an outstanding volunteer staff. All positions are voluntary, including the director's position. Support for our library is generated by municipal support, individual donations, business or organization donations, and through the Fund Raisers held on its behalf. Our goals are to constantly improve and offer services to meet the community's needs, hire professional staff, and build a future new facility. We strive to meet guidelines recommended by the state and actively participate in district and county library endeavors. Our resources limit us from being state-funded, but we are building towards this goal.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.

We are looking for dedicated individuals who wish to support and advocate for the library. Volunteers wishing to work during daily operations at the library need to devote a minimum of 8 hours per month and possess basic computer skills. Volunteers are also needed to set up and work at community and fundraising events. This commitment could range from once a year to a few events per year. We also have a group of volunteers who maintain our patio area by weeding and watering in the summer months. Volunteers must complete at least two clearances, the Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance and the Pennsylvania Criminal Record Check These clearances are free for volunteers. Information about obtaining these clearances can be found at keepkidssafe.pa.gov or visit the library for more information.
