The Guemes Island Library needs YOU to be generous with your time by volunteering at the library.

We'll show you how to use our new catalog and circulation system so that you can help patrons find what they are looking for, issue library cards and check books in and out. You can choose the day and time you volunteer that fits your schedule.  

Volunteers are an integral part in keeping the library doors open.  Last year we were able to open the Guemes Island Library on Friday afternoons in addition to Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.  One more day each week for patrons to use the computer, make copies, print documents and check out books, DVDs, videotapes, audio books and CDs.

Please consider becoming a volunteer. If you have any questions or want to find out how to get started, please contact me.
