Thank you for considering volunteering at Jaquith Public Library!
We welcome volunteers of all ages for any amount of time that you may be interested in.
What could I do to help? We're sure we can find the right fit for you could be helpful while doing something you enjoy. It could be helping out with one event, like a benefit concert where we could use help setting up chairs, perhaps running a bake sale, folding up chairs at the end.
We would love help with tasks that happen on a regular basis--shelving books, putting labels on new arrivals of books, putting letters on our road sign to help advertise upcoming events, helping post events on web sites like the Times Argus, and dusting the shelves even. Other special events include the nearly monthly event of Art and Author Night--Friday evenings with an art show/reception and then author's reading--help needed setting up some refreshments, perhaps rearranging some furniture.
How much time would I have to commit? You are welcome to start with a small commitment of one event, as mentioned above, or just start with one or two hours a week or a month. We form a strong friendship with our volunteers over time, but don't feel like you have to commit for months on end if you're unsure about it.
Susan Green, our director, would be happy to talk to anyone interested. You can contact her via email at jaquithpubliclibrary @ gmail.com or call her at 426-3581.
