Opportunities for Volunteers

We are fortunate to have a wonderful library. Here is a list of some opportunities to choose from in order to help the library and its staff:
  1. Hospitality. Help organize and/or serve refreshments for movies, meetings, and/or special occasions.
  2. Read shelves. Check and relocate books and materials to their assigned place in a specific genre or category. Due to browsing and lots of use, materials are sometimes out of order. 
  3. Story Hour. Assist story hour librarian by helping with crowd control and special needs of youngsters as well as craft projects..
  4. Summer Reading Club. Volunteers are needed to help with the SRC table and with special programs.
  5. Books-To-Go. Assist in delivery and pick-up of materials for those who can not easily access our library.
  6. Magazine Exchange (located near the reference desk). Share your finished periodicals with others and borrow some new ones.
  7. Special help projects. From time to time, a special project needs to be completed, i.e. switching DVDs to new cases.
  8. Veterans Oral History Project. Assist with refreshments and recordings of these amazing war stories.
