We Love Our Volunteers!
We’re looking for adult and teen volunteers to be part of our enthusiastic team! For more information:
A Library “Docent” can be scheduled once a month, biweekly or weekly to volunteer for 3 hour shifts either in the morning or afternoon, Mondays through Saturdays. Docents help patrons use the card catalog, locate materials, and use the self-check-out stations. Docents shelve books, prep and repair books, help with children’s programming, and other tasks as needed. Docents are asked to complete an initial questionnaire, attend an orientation, and sign the Library’s Confidentiality Agreement. If you are interested in becoming a Library Docent, please Email Tina Barton, Docent Coordinator (email@example.com).
Teen Volunteers work with Rachel Heller (youth librarian) in the children’s library. Volunteers help organize craft projects, put away books, assist with programs and other tasks as needed. The schedule is flexible, from doing a one-time session to helping at the library on a weekly basis. Volunteers must be between the ages of 14 and 18 years old. For more information, send an email to Rachel Heller (firstname.lastname@example.org) or download the SPL Teen Volunteer Agreement and return it to the library (we also have paper copies at the library). Volunteers will coordinate with Rachel ahead of time to organize the schedule and discuss activities.
