Remodel work on the Cathlamet Public Library – Town Hall building is targeted to begin in September. Wahkiakum County Commissioners have agreed to allow use of the River Street Meeting Room as a temporary location. At this time Library hours are projected to stay the same. An important objective of the move is to minimize the amount of time the Library is closed to customers.
Crews of volunteers will be needed to help with packing, hauling (including providing vehicles) and unpacking several hundred cartons of movies and books plus furniture and supplies. Donations of food items for a buffet lunch, to be held in the basement of Pioneer Church, will also be needed.
The move is currently scheduled to take place Friday and Saturday, September 21 and 22. In order to accomplish all of the work in this time period, volunteers will be asked to commit to specific time slots. Additional information will be provided closer to move day.
A sign-up sheet is located on the front desk at the Library. Volunteers can also email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the volunteer list. They will be asked to specify one or more jobs they are willing to do; such as packing cartons, loading furniture and cartons, hauling with their vehicle, unpacking and providing food.
