∑ Updating our webpage with news and events
∑ Submitting programs to local newspaper event calendars
∑ Checking other local librariesí upcoming events to make sure we do not have programs at the same time or on the same subject
∑ Visiting local organizations to explain what services the library provides
∑ Finding local groups and organizations that would like to work with the library to provide services and programs
∑ Finding local people that would like to present a program for the library to share their knowledge, skills, or experience with the community
You may volunteer for one or multiple tasks. Thanks!
