What tasks might volunteers be helping with?

Some examples of tasks we need help with :
  • Helping with library events before, during, and after
  • Laminating and covering books with precision
  • Preparation of crafts for programs
  • Seasonal decoration of youth area
  • Facing and straightening items on shelves
  • Locating and pulling items that have been placed on hold by library patrons
  • Shelf-reading
  • Arranging magazine issues on shelves
  • Copying and folding brochures
  • Dusting shelves and plants; cleaning scuffed kick-stools, etc.

These are examples of some tasks volunteers have performed for us in the past. There may be other tasks available.

Examples of tasks performed only by our trained staff:

  • Reading to children
  • Checking out materials to patrons
  • Checking in returned materials
  • Shelving

Please note: Some of our volunteer tasks rely heavily on regular attendance to keep our workflow moving smoothly. If you find that you are unable to maintain your regular volunteer commitment, we may suggest a different assignment for you.
