Click above to download.

Membership renewal begins in January each year.

It is also an opportunity to think about and inquire about new volunteer opportunities.  There are new volunteer categories on the membership app.  If you circle one or two that interest you, a board member will contact you with further info and answer your questions.

Membership fees remain unchanged: $5 for Individuals, $10 for Families and a Lifetime Membership is $100 (no renewal necessary).  You can bring your application to the Annual Meeting on Saturday, Jan 14th, mail it to the library address on the form, or bring it in and place it in the money box on the wall by the in house book sale.  Thanks for all your support and book donations.
