Not sure if volunteering is for you? Bring a friend! "Many hands make light work" as the saying goes.

Got teenagers? Got teenagers who need volunteer hours? This is a perfect opportunity, and we always need young, strong backs during setup and breakdown.

Have a truck that we can use to transport the books the two blocks from our storage to our location for the sale? Please let us know!

Come down to Smoketown Brewing Station for a winter fundraiser. Smoketown will be putting their new Scottish Ale online that night, while the Friends of the Library sponsors a silent auction, poetry reading, and Robert Burns trivia.

Due to impending extreme weather, including a possible hurricane, Railroad Days is canceled and, with it, our annual book sale. 

Many thanks to our would-be volunteers.

Volunteers still needed!

Railroad Days is only a week away. Many thanks to those of you who have signed up to help out at the Friends' book sale, but we still have a few open slots. We can also use a few more hands for set up and break down.

If you've not already signed up, please do so now. Bring a friend! Two hours goes by rather quickly, and you'll be helping us raise funds that go directly to help the Brunswick Library.

There are 3 ways for you to sign up:
- Go to: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/8050f4daca62da64-friends (best method) and choose the times that work best for you
- Email us at FOLBrunswick@gmail.com
- Call us at 240-285-9583 and leave a message

(And, if you still can't volunteer, do stop by and buy a book or three.)
