  • host speakers and other free community programs, primarily at the library;
  • contribute to local programs that enhance literacy and the love of books in our valley;
  • host book sales in the summer as both a community service and a fundraiser;
  • support and encourage the Old Rock Library staff through occasional “thank you” events and by providing funds for needed library improvements;
