Volunteer Work Party (Information & Work Session)

The little library that love built is now open! And it takes continued effort to keep it that way. We are so glad to have had many books donated. Now we need to get them on the shelves! We also need to cover books with dust jackets, insert book plates to recognize our donors, send thank you notes. Join us for a volunteer get together to work on Children's Diversity & Justice Library development. We'll have fun and work together to keep this little library going and make it even better! Bring a tablet, smartphone or laptop if you have one. Childcare available. Location - Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church. Lizzie Crozier French Room
