The Traveling Library is a community resource and a community effort — we depend on volunteers. Here are several opportunities to help!
Sawmill Road Library Volunteer
Help us keep the Sawmill Road Library open for people to return books and browse our large collection there. Check out and re-shelve books as needed. Currently we need volunteers on Thursdays from 9-12 and Wednesdays 3-7.
If you are great at detail-oriented projects, we could use your help wrapping books in protective coverings and keeping our collections in good order on the shelves. If you have good computer skills, we can use help with updating online catalog records as well. A perfect opportunity for people who don’t necessarily love working with people! This work can be done on your schedule between 9am-3pm Mon-Fri. We hope for a 1-2 hour weekly commitment.
Books on Wheels Volunteer
Some residents of our county are homebound or live in nursing homes. They would love a friendly visit from a volunteer who can help them get books to read. A visit once a month can make a big difference for a neighbor in need! We hope each volunteer can make a commitment of 1-2 visits per month. We will train you.
Book Sale Volunteer
If you can only help once or twice a year, consider helping out at a book sale! We need people to move small boxes of books down the hall on a flatbed cart, people to unpack and sort the books on tables, people to help customers during sales, and people to pack up after the sale.
Ride along on the bookmobile and help check books out and reshelve them. Typically this is a 5-8 hour weekday commitment and we hope you can be a regular volunteer at least once per month. A lot of fun!
