Volunteer Fire Tenders Wanted!


We try to keep the fire burning December through March, on Sundays from 1:00 to 3:00. What a wonderful tradition you can become a part of as you help create a warm environment for our patrons.

Volunteers aged 21 and over are welcome to join Melissa Hall on Friday, December 4 or Friday, December 11 at 10am at the fireplace in the 1904 Reading Room for a tutorial on operating the fireplace and keeping a fire going. She will review safety procedures and volunteers responsibilities.

After completing the brief training, volunteers can sign up for the 12:30 – 3:30pm Sundays throughout the winter.

Please let me know if you are interested but cannot make the two dates and we can figure something out. I can be reached over email at or 207-725-5242 x237
