We deliver books to home-bound patrons on a weekly basis.  We are looking for a volunteer over age 18 with a valid driver’s license to sign up for the second Tuesday of every month.  The task is to pick up the stack of books that will have been prepared in advance and deliver them to each of our home-bound patrons; currently we have 6, all living in Grafton.  The volunteer also picks up the books ready to be returned and brings them back to the library. The whole exercise takes about one hour.

If interested, please call Susan Leto at 508-839-4649 extension 8 or send an email to letos@graftonlibrary.org.
