Call for Helpful Booklovers


It’s back! The Lampert Library is open for borrowing with a limited number of new books available on the table in the gallery.

While the library is still full of boxes, we do know that the new bookshelves will be delivered in a couple of weeks and then readers will begin to have access to all the Lampert Library’s treasures and Curious George will once again have a home.

However, unpacking the boxes will be a massive task. Some of you have offered to help.

It would be wonderful to have all the boxes unpacked by mid-August when I go on vacation so that our library will be ready for the new year and new classes of preschoolers.

If you can help or know some teenagers who might be looking for volunteer work, please let me know your availability by email (email hidden; JavaScript is required) and I’ll work up a schedule.

Thanks in advance from both Curious George and me to all you helpful volunteers. Be mindful that this involves unpacking boxes, handling a lot of books and putting them on shelves in numerical order.
