Can you help us?

It takes a village to be successful in keeping with our mission to continually provide funds to supplement the 

Library’s operating budget or underwrite the cost for selected new Library programs.  

We are reaching out for your help to identify volunteers:

  • to support and work at various events.  We need ongoing volunteer assistance for our traditional fundraisers (some of which are identified below) and several new initiatives.
  • who are interested in being nominated for the Board of The Friends of the Cotuit Library (FOCL).  We are seeking several high-energy volunteers with “can do” attitudes and collaborative skills to serve terms on the Board beginning at the start of our fiscal year, July 2017.

 Immediate Volunteer Opportunities 

We have an immediate need for project leaders, co-leaders and/or volunteers to work at these scheduled 

events, including pre-event preparations, day of event help and post event wrap-up:

  • Fundraiser - Annual Plant, Bake, and Treasure Sale & Raffle @ Freedom Hall 
  • Community Service - Annual Library Book Sale & Raffle  
  • Fundraiser - Annual Fashion Show, Raffle and Auction 


Governing Board Nominees for Openings Beginning with a July 2017 Term of Office

Several of our current Board members will have reached their term limits by June 2017. We are in need of 

nominees who have the time and talents to take on a FOCL Board position to help maintain our organization’s 

vibrancy and ability to meet goals.
