Membership starts at only $5.
As a member you can participate as much or a little as you wish in an organization that supports, with member efforts, member dollars, and funds raised from the monthly book sale, many different programs and projects: the Summer Reading Program, the 1st Wednesdays humanities lecture series, and the Addison County Readers/Dolly Parton Imagination Library Books for Tots program just to name a few.
