Volunteers must be ENTERING Grades 7 - 12 in Sept. 2020, possess a Moffat Library Card, and be current residents of the Washingtonville School District to be eligible for Community Service credit with the library.  If you do not have a library card, visit https://moffatlibrary.org/library-card-sign-up/ to sign up online.

  8. Community Service certificates will be sent to you by request only.  If you need a form signed for school, etc. please contact Emily so we can make arrangements.  Please allow 7 days for turn around.
