FOSL is looking for volunteers to help staff and care for Epilogue Bookstore located at the library entrance. The bookstore is staffed by FOSL volunteers – no paid staff. Help us keep the store open by volunteering for 3 or 4 hour shifts on a scheduled basis. Please consider this opportunity. The link for a volunteer application appears below. All proceeds will be used to support the library. Thank you for your consideration!
