Volunteering here gives you the opportunity to earn community- service hours by keeping library materials well- maintained and answering/ helping patrons with their queries in a comfortable environment/ workplace. You also gain the opportunity of meeting new people and new friends

It is one of the fulfilling experience. If you can read and write and can help another person to lead a more rewarding life there is a great joy in it!! SJPL even trains the tutors to help individuals to improve their reading and writing or any other literacy related skills.

Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
