Become a Library Board Member!
VGPL will be starting a new fiscal year in July. While this last year offered up challenges we hadn’t even imagined, with the community’s help, we’ve met them and are looking forward to changes for the better.
One of the tools we use to meet challenges as well as grow a successful, community-oriented library in times good and times difficult, is our Board. This Board consists of 7-12 members, meets the third Tuesday of each month (virtually at present) and works on everything from fundraising to community relations to making sure we fulfill our mission of bringing lifelong learning in a supportive community environment. Anyone who’s served can tell you that there’s work, but there’s a lot of fun and that the work is for a great cause. With the new fiscal year rolling around, there are openings on the Board as terms expire and life happens. We’re seeking new candidates who have an interest in supporting the library in this way, please contact Tana Monaco at firstname.lastname@example.org, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Collection Amazon Wish List:
Owing to the financial exigencies of the pandemic, our ability to purchase items for the collection is reduced. We are working hard to bring you high demand new releases, but that leaves items that we cannot purchase at this time. If you follow this link, you can find a list on Amazon where you can purchase them for the library. We appreciate you using this wish list, as it reduces the likelihood of multiple copies of items of which we only have need and space for one.
See our article in Tumbleweeds for suggestions on improving online browsing!
