What has made the library a success is the willingness of the Thrashers and other STG volunteers to put in thousands of hours of uncompensated time to make it happen. Only about $11,000 has been invested in the creation and maintenance of the library through 2016, but this is matched, almost one-for-one, by nearly 13,000 hours of volunteer labor. In addition to working on the preservation and cataloging of the material, volunteers cleaned and painted suites 401 and 402 in the Paramount Building, which now house the library, and even made new drapes for its windows. From the very beginning, not one cent has been paid for labor, and without the generous expenditure of time by all involved, the library simply would not exist.
The library continues to call upon volunteers to help to continue the preservation of all three of our historic theatres. If interested please complete the following form.
