Do you have any ideas or comments, or perhaps you would like to join the Board of Directors and volunteers?
Returning borrowed books
Please return your books by placing them in the book chute beside the main entrance. Books are placed in quarantine for 48 hours before being replaced on the shelves.
Used book boutique
Second hand books are on sale in a space set aside for this purpose. The income from these sales helps to fund our services.
Every Saturday, you can purchase a bag of books for $2. At other times, prices vary from 50 cents to $1 per book.
In order to respect social distancing measures, only one person can enter the boutique at a time.
Recruitment of volunteers
As previously mentioned, the management and operation of The Little Green Library is taken care of solely by persons who volunteer to offer their time.
It is essential for our organization that we recruit new volunteers to maintain and even develop our service offer.
Our volunteers who are most often seen are those who work at the loan counter, but there are also people who work at purchasing, cataloguing and classifying the books, not to mention organizing fund raising activities, art exhibits, promoting our activities, delivering books to day-care centres and seniors' residences, etc.
Naturally, at the moment, training new volunteers has temporarily been suspended, but the needs are real, so don't hesitate to join our team!
