The following is a brief description of the volunteer opportunities.
Adopt-A -ShelfHelp this vibrant committee in many different ways.
Work on your own time schedule and assist the librarians in keeping the collection in order on the shelves. The Non-Fiction area is always in need of being organized and may be the biggest challenge.
From volunteering at the big sales in October and April to weekly sorting of the donated books, to the daily on-going sale, there is plenty of up-front and behind-the-scenes work.
Election Day Library Card Registration
Volunteers are located at different voting places on Election Day, to sign up voters for library cards, Friends' Membership, and to inform them of library programs. Shifts are usually 2 hours long.
This committee is composed of individuals who like to work on, one-time, short term events.
Whether it is during the planning stages, the day of the event or somewhere in between, your help will make our event a success.
If you like to shop for goodies, this is the committee for you. There are some events throughout the year such as our Friends' Reception in October and our Annual Meeting in June where refreshments are served. Members of this committee help in providing the goodies.
This committee assists with mailings to the members to collect dues and to inform of upcoming activities. They also attend Friends sponsored events to promote membership There are plenty behind-the-scene jobs too!
Come by for a few hours to assist with the stuffing, labeling, and mailing of the Library's Footnotes and Calendar of Events. Generally mailing days are held on the 3rd or 4th Thursday mornings, five times a year.
Social Media / Publicity
The Friends have a website and a Facebook page that needs volunteers to keep them up to date. In addition if we had a willing volunteer there may be other social media that would be of benefit to the Friends.
There is a need for people who would help to advertise our events such as our Book Sales and Wine and Cheese Social by distributing flyers, sending press releases or performing other tasks.
