 Summer Reading Theme – Be Creative @ Voluntown Library begins Thursday June 18, 2009. If you have a program idea or a creative skill you would love to share with the community, and especially the youth, for this summer, or anytime, contact Deborah Fleet or Sharon Geer at Voluntown Public Library, 860-376-0485, vltnlib@yahoo.com Don’t be shy, sharing your skills and knowledge is a great way to promote community and volunteerism in our town.

 Many thanks to the library staff and volunteers who have helped at the library during my recent absence/injury. I am hoping to be back in full swing soon.
