We are actively seeking volunteers to serve in all the roles described above.As we all rebound from COVID-induced constraints, please help us sustain the library’s long tradition of community involvement and engagement.If you would like to learn more or explore where your interests and talent might best fit, please feel free to contact any of the Trustees.We look forward to hearing from you!And residents of Quivet Neck, please plan to attend our annual meeting in May (date TBD) to vote for the Trustee and Advisors.
