5. Help needed: The Friends of the Charlestown Library is looking for volunteers to help with their RIF program on Jan. 24. They need volunteers from 1-2 p.m. to set up the books, 4-5 p.m. to help distribute and from 5-6 p.m. to help clean up. It is a wonderful way to help this local resource and incredible program. If you are interested and available, please email the children's librarian at email@example.com.
