This special period is for all Friends of J.R. Clarke Public Library, and any patron can sign up for the group before entering the book sale on the evening of April 25.

J. R. Clarke Public Library encourages patrons to consider being a volunteer at the library. There are many things to do whether it is volunteering once a month or once a week. Individuals who have a special area that you are interested in doing should let the library staff know.
