Looking for a Volunteer
The Friends are excited to say "thank you" to Judy Michael for volunteering to help to take pictures at Friends of the Elizabethville Area Library events so that we can post them on our Facebook page, as well as on our page on the DCLS website. We are still asking for some additional volunteers to assist her in these duties.
