Candy Striper Convener
The library is another one of our services which was started in 1945 for patient comfort.
Twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays, two of our members would take the Library cart full of books and magazines to each patient. The ladies also had a tray with free cigarettes, matches, gum, candy bars, combs, writing paper, stamps and similar items.
Today, our Library Auxilians do not go room to room. Once a week magazines are distributed to all venues of the Hospital; lounges, waiting areas, TV rooms, etc.
Time magazines are donated and dropped off at the Hospital Gift Shop. The Library Convener also acquires magazines from the Economy Shop.
There are 6 members on the Library committee who work approximately 10 hours per month.
