Would you like to help local Veterans? There are a wide range of benefits people earn through military service, but it can often be difficult for veterans to complete application processes or even understand what they are entitled to.

We are seeking volunteers to help staff our Veterans Resource Center, located in the Main Library. You will work directly with patrons who have served in the US Military (or their families), helping them improve their lives by enrolling in benefits and services. No prior knowledge of resources is required; the library will provide training. This is an excellent opportunity for veterans to be of service to their community, but anyone is welcome to volunteer.

Volunteers will ideally be scheduled for a weekly 2 hour shift (Sundays, Mondays, or Fridays) and will be able to commit to a minimum of six months.
