Main Library, Poetry Month

Are you friendly, outgoing, and good with people? If so, the Main Library (125 14 thStreet) could use your help as a volunteer greeter.

Volunteer greeters are the welcoming face of the library - greeting and orienting users to the building, encouraging people to visit regularly, and helping patrons find the services they seek at the library. Greeters also share library resources (maps, flyers, newsletters, schedules, etc.) and assist patrons with using the self-checkout machines. Volunteers are asked to work at least one 2-hour shift per week, and - for most of the time - you will be on your feet, standing at the entrance and roaming the library. A six-month commitment is required. Training will be provided.

To apply, please complete an OPL Volunteer Application and submit to: Sara DuBois, Oakland Main Library, 125 14th St., Oakland 94612. To access this application, click "I Want to Help" above.
