Many thanks to our volunteers!

We had a delightful picnic on Friday evening to celebrate the contributions of our volunteers. The FCLS staff provided the food and drinks and it was quite a spread. We had a great turnout so the company was good and the conversation lovely.
The FCLS volunteers contributed over 5500 hours throughout our system and do many tasks that help all of us, including shelving, processing new materials, calling customers to let them know that holds have arrived, and helping with our events and the Summer Reading Program. We thank you and value your hard work!

We Made A Splash!

The 2010 Summer Reading Program is almost over (all hours have to be turned in by the end of the day on Saturday, Aug. 21) and we want to share some memorable moments! We want to thank everyone who came to our programs! A very special thank you to all of our volunteers who set up craft stations, recorded hours, handed out prizes, and lent a hand in all kinds of ways.

This summer our libraries were a great place to hang out with old friends and even make some new ones. It seemed to go by fast as we heard stories about pirates, sharks, and other creatures that you find around water. We hope that you had as much fun as we did!
