If a volunteer is not in the "Genie Room", check with the librarian upstairs and she will call one of us to come in.
Our "NEW" Genie Room is now locked when we are not in. We run our room with volunteers and we are not always in the room.
If you know you are going to be in the area, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the library and we will arrange to have a volunteer come in to assist you.
