SSCL needs you!

Volunteers needed at the Circulation Desk

Due to Covid-19 health concerns Stockton Springs Community Library has experienced a decline in the number of volunteers currently able to work during open library hours. To maintain 501(c)3 status, and with it the ability to secure much needed grants, SSCL needs to stay open 18 hours a week. You can help by working as little as one shift a month (shifts are 2 to 3 hours depending on the day). Two volunteers are needed for each shift. Complete training is provided. So are masks and gloves. So here’s your chance to live your secret dream of being a librarian! 

The library also needs volunteers to work in its lovely flower gardens. Even an hour or so once in awhile will help keep the weeds at bay. 

Please contact SSCL at 207-567-4147 or just stop by during open hours and let us know how you are able to help.  Thank you! 

Open library hours are Monday and Wednesday 3-5; Tuesday 4-7; Thursday 9-12 and 6:30-8:30; and Saturday 9-3.  Stockton Springs Community Library is an all volunteer library and membership is free to anyone from any community. 

SSCL Garden Group is getting ready for the 2020 growing season with a Seed Swap

Some of us already have more seeds than we need, so how about a seed swap the first week in March? The SSCL Garden Group will start in March this year with the seed swap on Monday, March 2 at 6 pm. Bring seeds! Or just come to get some. All welcome. Free event.

Stockton Springs Community Library is an all volunteer library. Call us at 207-567-4147 if you have any questions about the seed swap or the Garden Group.
