The National Multiple Sclerosis Society exists because there are people with MS. Our vision is a world free of MS. Everything we do is focused so that people affected by MS can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever.
We are more than an organization. We are a movement. United in our collective power to do something about MS now and end this disease forever. The gathering place for people with MS, their family and loved ones, healthcare providers, volunteers, donors, fundraisers, advocates, community leaders and all those that seek a world free of MS. A place to connect and take action. In order to change the world, we mobilize all possible human and financial resources to achieve results.
Volunteers make Walk MS possible!
Each year, thousands of people across the country join the Walk MS volunteer team. From planning event details and calling past participants to providing safety and support for walkers at the event, volunteers make Walk MS happen, and are the foundation of why Walk MS is one of the largest fundraising events in the country.
Who can volunteer?
Families, corporate groups, and individuals of all ages and abilities are encouraged and welcome to volunteer. We are always looking for youth clubs, corporate, and service-oriented community groups to lend a hand before, during, and after our events.
When you decide to volunteer, you become part of the MS movement – a collective of passionate individuals, moving together to create a world free of MS. Together we provide support, have fun, and make a difference in the lives of people living with MS.
The Town of Roseboro has had a library in some form since 1939, moving from a wing of the Roseboro Community Building, to a larger location on West Street, to the Roseboro Municipal Building on Pleasant Street in 1968. Several years after the First Baptist Church of Roseboro burned down, the church donated the land for the construction of a library. This library building was opened in the midsummer of 1989.
Established in 1977 by then Library Director Bill Snyder, this library was named after a local school teacher who would loan books out of her own home to her students. Although the smallest of the branches, this library is as well-stocked proportionately as the other two branches with top best-sellers, children’s materials, and DVD’s.
Opened in 1983, this library was dedicated in memory of James and Irene Carroll Bryan. They are the parents of Mr. Raymond Bryan who provided the bulk of the funding for the building. In addition to adult books and magazines, this library also houses an extensive children’s collection as well as DVDs and audiobooks for all ages.
The J.C. Holliday Library is still the headquarters of the library system and houses the administrative office and technical processing department. The largest collection of materials is located here, including research materials, a specialized local history and genealogy collection, audio books, and DVD’s. There is a free public wireless Internet connection, 14 public access computers with black and white printing for 20¢ each, a copy machine for 20¢ for black and white & 50¢ for color, and a scanner which will scan to USB/email/the cloud for $.05 or to fax for $1 per page.
