Frahman has been a volunteer at the library for more than 15 years and served on the Board of Trustees for 10. In 2006, when Frahman was board president, she approached artist Rick Price about creating the mural that graces the facade of the library. As president of the Friends of the Howland Library, Marcia also manages Beacon Reads Bookstore.

McCray provides free technical assistance to patrons on most weekends.
