Adult volunteers


Library programs and services are enhanced through the dedication and assistance of volunteers. We regret that we have a limited number of volunteer opportunities for adults. When a volunteer opportunity arises, the library will advertise the position and accept applications. The library does not keep applications on file.

Friends of the Library


The Friends of the Library is an organization dedicated to promoting and providing services and equipment for the BWG Public Library. Fundraising activities focus on our book sales. The funds raised by the Friends are used to purchase equipment and furnishings, provide author visits, concerts, and movies, and to support programming for kids and teens, especially our summer reading programs. Consider making a cash donation to support the Friends of the Library by clicking the icon below.
