The restoration of the library site will get a huge boost from six days of work in late January and early February by an AmeriCorps team of 12 young adults. The team will work on clearing the land of invasive plant species under the leadership of Linda Skeff, Co-leader of the Felton Library Friends Restoration Team.

How you can help out:

  • Community members will be invited to join the team for some hands-on work. Stay tuned for specific dates in a future FLF email.

  • Donations of food (or gift certificates to New Leaf), tools such as shovels and picks, and supplies for the Team’s residence would be greatly appreciated. The team also needs gently used twin beds and linens and some sitting room furniture.
