We are looking for people who have specific skills and would volunteer some time each week to the library:
- a person to write and send out, electronically, press releases.
- a person that can use excel and mail merge
- volunteers to donate a couple of hours a week to work on the front desk. Training is available!!! .
If you could volunteer to do any of these, please contact Phyllis, at the front desk, for more details.
Volunteers make it possible for us to have a free library!
The Russell Collection also needs volunteers:
- to process books acquired and to log in photos received
- someone to do data entry.
Historical Newspaper Articles Available
Newspapers are available on the Library of Congress Chronicling America website.
Wanted Book Reviews!
How about a Biography Reader's Pick for our book review page? Or a History Reader's Pick, a Young Adult Reader's Pick -- even a Cookbook Reader's Pick? Send us short reviews of favorite books you think other like-minded readers will enjoy. E-mail to
or drop them off at the desk.
By the way, if the library doesn't yet own the book, perhaps you'd like to purchase a copy -- at the library's 20-45% discount -- and gift it to the collection. Talk to Phyllis.
The meeting room needs new, more comfortable chairs. If you could contribute a chair, please contact Phyllis at the Library for details on the chair.

MARTHA CANFIELD LIBRARY RECEIVES TEN NEW COMPUTERS FROM MACK MOLDING
The ten new computers from MACK MOLDING are up and running. This wonderful gift has made it possible for more people to be on-line at once, so there is little or no waiting time.
We have also received three computers and a wireless printer, which will allow people who are using their own laptops to have print capabilities, from EVermont Broadband, a grant made possible with federal funds.
