We are always looking for new volunteers who would like to join us. If you would like to try it before you decide, we would love to work with you. No pressure at all. It is 3 hours per month. We do have a good time and appreciate all the volunteers we have. Volunteering is a great way to make friends and become a part of the community.
There are four different 3-hour weekly shifts: Tuesdays from 10 to 1 and 1 to 4; Fridays from 10 to 1 and Saturdays from 1 to 4.
If the schedule comes out and the dates that you'd like to volunteer are already filled, by all means, come anyway. The more the merrier. Most of the volunteers work the same days of each month - but you are always welcome to join them. There's always something to do at the library, even if it's just tidying up the shelves or visiting and having a cup of tea.
